When my kids were all at home I was one of those cookie making moms. They would often come home to a fresh baked batch of cookies. Whenever they had friends over there was always a batch of cookies to snack on. I told them I did it for them but really, I LOVE a fresh baked cookie and I enoyed it as much as they did. It was the perfect way to indulge my love of a fresh baked cookie.
Now that my kids aren’t at home anymore I don’t have the excuse of baking for them and their friends anymore. Good thing I have neighbor kids who I can use as an excuse. But really, do you need an excuse to enjoy a warm, fresh baked cookie?
These cookies are perfect for the person who, heaven forbid, doesn’t like too much chocolate in their cookies.
- Toffee Bits. You can use the ones covered in chocolate if you want a bit of chocolate in your cookies.
- Oatmeal. The recipe calls for old fashioned oatmeal which will give you a chewier cookie, you can use quick oats if you prefer, the cookie just won’t be as chewy.
- Brown Sugar. The recipe uses only brown sugar which adds to the chewiness and give the cookie great flavor.
- Butter. Always butter.
- Flour. I use unbleached all purpose flour.
- Baking soda, baking powder and salt.
- Cinnamon. This is optional but I love the flavor it gives the cookies.
If you prefer a little more chocolate add in some chocolate chips too.
My friend Meg was over the day I made these cookies and she followed me around the kitchen and took some lovely photos – it was so much fun. I almost felt famous!
