When I was helping take care of Baby J this week, our daughter wanted to make cookies. She had this new recipe she wanted us to try. The neat thing about this recipe was that while we were making the cookies, we could safely eat the cookie dough. And it was sooo good. These cookies were delicious warm out of the oven and also the next day. Not many were left after that.
Here’s the recipe:
- 1 cup butter (I want to try 1/2 cup butter & 1/2 cup applesauce and see how that works)
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 cup boiling water
- 2 cups quick oats
- 1/2 cups raisins (I may add more because we really like raisins)
- 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Beat the first four ingredients until fluffy. Add the flour and salt. Mix well. Add the baking soda to the boiling water and add to mixture. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Drop by teaspoonful on to ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Do not overbake! This should make around 3 1/2 dozen cookies.
