This morning I ground some wheat to make whole wheat flour to put in the cookies. It gives them a lovely, nutty flavor. Mixing all the ingredients together, it was all I could do not to eat the bowl of raw dough! Honestly, what a silly thing for me to want to do when the baked cookies are so much better.
Now, that is cookie bliss. Three perfectly baked rounds of yumminess, ready to ward of afternoon hunger pangs.
I use the Quaker Oatmeal Cookie recipe, with a few alterations. I use half and half white and whole wheat flour and, since I like my cookies plain, I do not add the spices. I think it allows the flavors of the butter, brown sugar and oats to come singing through. Really, why would you want to cover those up?
I'm sharing the recipe, just in case you want to experience some baking bliss of your own.
