Cookie Jar

I finally got to use my cookie jar that I bought on Thursday at Michael’s! I saw it and was like “I need that!” Even though I really didn’t need a cookie jar, it’s so hard not to buy items from work, what can I say, I’m an impulse shopper. Anyways, the beau and roomate absolutely love it when I make my oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and the recipes nothing special either. It’s actually Quaker’s Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, I just switch out the raisins for chocolate chips.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 1/2  cup (1 stick) plus 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 3/4  cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2  cup granulated sugar
  • 2  eggs
  • 1  teaspoon vanilla
  • 1-1/2  cups all-purpose flour
  • 1  teaspoon baking soda
  • 1  teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2  teaspoon salt (optional) I always do this, I like the sweet and salty.
  • 3 cups Quaker® Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
  • 1  cup or more 😉 chocolate chips

Preparation

Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, beat butter and sugars on medium speed of electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well. Add oats and raisins; mix well.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire rack. Cool completely. Store tightly covered.

I usually have to bake them for about 11 minutes.

If you haven’t yet tried Quaker’s Oatmeal cookies with chocolate chips, I highly recommend it, so yummy and easy.

 

Firenze Arti Artisive

University of North Dakota has some great opportunities to study abroad in Europe such as: Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Italy, Norway, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. I will study at The Firenze Arti Visive School of Fine Arts (featured above) before I graduate with my BFA in Graphic Design. I’ll figure out a way to pay for it, because not only would I love to visit, backpack, and live in Italy I would love more than anything to study art in the heart of Florence, Italy! Which reminds me, adding another item to my bucketlist!
