|I needed a drink after my stressful stop at the grocery store. I had all the ingredients in the house for a Bloody Mary. That's right. I've been enjoying a daily drink but no cookie baking lately.|
After a slug of my cocktail for courage, I started to make oatmeal cookies. First, I mixed a few of the dry ingredients in a small bowl according to the recipe.
In no time, I had a wonderful mixture of butter and sugar. Phew, that was an adventure!
|Thank God for some vodka to help me cope. :)|
I added eggs, vanilla and the small bowl of ingredients I showed you above to the butter and sugar. The oatmeal and flour completed the cookie mixture. It's kind of an ugly mess at this point, but I had high hopes.
I'm surprised the cookies didn't slide off the cookie sheet. Aren't you? Maybe I shouldn't have had the drink after all!?
Now do you see why I think I should have used darker brown sugar? These cookies are slightly on the pale side, but then we're all a little pasty at this time of the year, aren't we!
