Spiced Oatmeal Cookies!!
Well. That’s not happening this week.
So here’s this instead. And it’s still in the spirit of wishing that fall was here ;)
The fun thing about these is that I INVENTED THEM ALL BY MYSELF!!!!!! (So don't tell me if you don't like them.)
These are an adaptation of Robin’s Granny’s cookies. Even though they're actually quite different. That’s okay.
Cream sugar, brown sugar and butter with a hand mixer until they are VERY fluffy. Add in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Add in your flours and oats. The mixture should be pretty thick. I've usually ditched the electric mixer by now.
(No offense, Environment. I’m just draining Lake Travis trying to hand wash all my friggin’ dishes.)
**Granny suggests putting a slice of white bread or apple slices in the container with the stored cookies to keep them moist and fresh.
