A sudden desire for cookies followed by the realization that all ingredients were at hand...
the rest is history!
Made only half of the recipe with some minor modifications.
I used a trail mix of nuts and cranberries with a sprinkle of raisins
and a small amount of tiny chocolate morsels.
My brown sugar was useless so I omitted it and substituted the egg
(since I made only half recipe) with 1 tbsp flaxseed meal mixed with
3 tbsp warm water.
Since I didn't use the brown sugar the cookies were crispier but
I didn't mind at all since I was craving sweet and crispy :-).
These above I flattened a bit with a spoon half way baking time thinking
that it was needed. The ones below I let them be and ended up with
a nice natural rustic aesthetic which I liked much better.
For odd, we improvised some mini allergen free s'mores.
She enjoyed putting them together and even more eating them!
(Yes... that cookie sheet has served me well, I think it is time
to replace it and I believe you totally agree with me!)
Baby let mommy have some fun in the kitchen and
slept through the whole process :-).
Notes: I made half of the recipe with substitutions and modifications.
The recipe is the one underneath Quaker's Oatmeal lid and it can
also be found here.
