I Need A Cookie Now!

Can the world be fixed with an afternoon cookie? My world can. I am craving a soft chewy oatmeal raisin cookie. I don't even know why!

I found these in my "Cookie" file. The package of raisins I thought I had in my pantry turned about to be prunes...aren't prunes really big raisins? Oh my! This recipe called for three cups of oats and only 1/2 cup of flour! I loved it because I didn't need to get out my Kitchenaid Mixer...the butter is melted and everything is mixed together by hand. The only missing ingredients are the soft chewy raisins. Now a bag of chocolate chips sits on the island....waiting for our final decision. My thanks to TasteFood for this recipe.

Books...finishing this one soon...it is just a bit predictable, it's what I expect from this author...lots of Nantucket lore and Nantucket traditions and tons of characters behaving badly but it's a fun book to read...especially after City On Fire...really!
Probably reading next...one of these...
Or these...I am in the mood for some fantasy...Dystopian...other worldly reading!
Have a great Tuesday! It's still really hot and humid here! The girls are crying to sit outside in their tent but when we did...they were panting...not a good look for a kitty!
Fondly,
Patty

  2. Cookies sound good! Prunes, no. Yuck.
    We Never Asked for Wings" is on my TBR List.

  3. I love oatmeal cookies! Not crazy about the raisins (or prunes, LOL), but they would do in a pinch.

    I hope to read The Rumor soon....and I definitely want We Never Asked for Wings. Are any of these from NetGalley? (I already have The Rumor).

  5. Chocolate chips yes, prunes no! At least for cookies-- that photo is amazing. I'm full right now but still dying for one. See what you started, lol!
    Enjoy your books, very different titles. I figured The Rumor would be classic Hilderbrand, which means you know what you are getting, but like it anyway.

    1. Rita...this one just seems too "canned". ..almost over the top? But it still has my attention...especially after City On Fire...lol...

  6. Cookies sounds good. I'm thinking about making zucchini oatmeal cookies if I have any zucchini waiting in the garden.
