You get a cookie - You get a cookie! And YOU get a cookie!! 🍪😂 This was pretty much me two weeks ago when I was working on a new Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookie recipe. In my quest to make the most perfect cookie - I made many, many batches of these delicious little confections - I was literally passing them out to everyone I know. Any neighborhood kids who happened to be playing near my house and my UPS delivery guy just a few of the unsuspecting recipients. 😅
I was contracted to create this new cookie recipe and let's face it - I'm nothing if not thorough. 🤣 I took the job of recipe creator very seriously so I baked and ate a LOT of cookies and when I just couldn't bear to eat any more - I started passing cookies out on the street. 😋
I spent weeks experimenting with gluten free, dairy free and vegan cookie Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies and taking on the role of recipe creator has obvious perks. The only downside of being compensated for recipe development, is that I can't share the recipe with all of you - for obvious reasons.
And even though I can't publish that particular labor of love, I do have an equally delicious Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookie recipe to share. I didn't create this heavenly treat from scratch but I did, tweak it to make it my own. 😉 As II do with every cookie recipe - you can trust that I've thoroughly taste tested these cookies and they passed the test. 🍪 They're amazing.
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter room temperature
1/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup light-brown sugar
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup chocolate chips
Cool 5 minutes on baking sheet before moving to a rack to cool completely.
Never in a million years did I ever think I would EVER get tired of eating cookies. I mean, I love cookies so much and I've dreamed of a time that I could eat cookies all day, every day for weeks at a time. I got to live that dream and it turns out - much to my surprise - there's actually a limit to the number of cookies that I can consume in one day. Who knew? I tested the theory that the overconsumption of cookies would diminish my love for the delicious treats and I can honestly say that after this project, I took a two day cookie hiatus and then jumped right back on the cookie bandwagon. 😅
