cookies (i wonder how many times i have used that boring title)Sunday, November 23, 2008
Lest you think that I have reneged on my cookie of the week, I can assure you that I have not. There are always cookies being baked over here.
Last weeks cookie was Oatmeal scotchies. That I had to make after seeing this photo. The recipe is right on the bag of butterscotch chips. I can't believe that I have never made them. They were a big hit, and the butterscotch chips seemed to make them extra sweet.
Also last week, I made the batter for this cookie, after seeing this post on Parikha's blog. I baked them today. Perfect for this coming week. This cookie definitely is not as sweet as the oatmeal scotchie. I sprinkled the second and third batches with sugar before baking. Added a little bit of "sweetness" if you know what I mean.
And to keep their snappiness, I took the advice and stored them in a ziplock bag. Sort of a bummer since I like cookies in the cookie jar. But nobody probably wants a soggy gingersnap.
