Crunchy Miniature Butterscotch Oat Cookies

Miniature Butterscotch Cookies

As much as I love making big, decadent, dramatic looking brownies or cookies, I also enjoy miniature cookies that are crunchy through and through. A while back I came up with these Miniature Chocolate Chip Cookies which are always crunchy due to a long, slow bake time. This weekend I decided to try a miniature […]

Coconut Pudding Cookies

If you like your oatmeal cookies thick and kind of soft in the middle, try these.   They don’t spread much, and the pudding keeps them from getting hard.  I made mine in a range of sizes and decided I like them about medium, but next time I might try making them as big as scones! […]

Dark Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

dark chocolate chip oatmeal cookies

These oatmeal cookies might be a little different than what you’re used to.  With more butter and less egg, they’re thick and dense, but still soft in the center.  The ones in this picture are what I’d call regular size, as they’re made with a rounded tablespoon of dough…. But for the second batch, I […]

Oatmeal Cookies with Instant Pudding Mix

oatmeal cookies made with instant pudding mix

A lot of people put instant pudding mix in their chocolate chip cookies, but did you know it can also be used in oatmeal cookies? As in the chocolate chip variety, the pudding mix helps keep the inside soft and the outside crisp while adding a little flavor. For today’s batch, I used a combination […]

If you’re not tired of cookies yet (I’m not even close, unfortunately), here’s another recipe for you. It doesn’t quite fall into the healthy category, but with the oats and wheat germ, you could do worse. Plus, these are really, really good! They don’t look like much, but what I liked about the cookies were […]

Oatmeal Cookie Brittle

Oatmeal Cookie Brittle

After getting a thumbs up from Carolyn, who left a comment with her opinion on the Brownie Bark, I took her advice and tried making an oatmeal version. Definitely more of a brittle than a bark, this cookie is from the late Helen Corbitt. And for those of you limiting gluten, you’ll be happy to […]

One Bowl Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

oatmeal raisin cookies

Today’s experiment was to see what would happen if I made an old Amish oatmeal cookie recipe with oil instead of shortening and used whole grain flour in place of all-purpose. An added bonus (if the idea worked), would be that I’d only need one bowl. Hooray on both accounts! The oil (grapeseed) made the […]

Monster Cookies

Monster cookies made the news this week, only they weren’t called Monsters. They were Ann Romney’s Oatmeal Peanut Butter M&M Cookies, one of the contenders in Family Circle’s ever popular Presidential Cookie Bake-Off. You can read more about that here and take a look at the competition, but for now I’m going to tell you […]
