If you had to choose just one, what would be your favorite cookie?
No question mine would be Oatmeal raisin.
Specifically, the recipe from the lid of the Quaker Oats container.
Probably because that is the one we made the most growing up.
It was in fact, the first cookie I ever attempted, by myself.
Loved them then, and still love them now (modified to be gluten free of course).
The rest of my household prefer any kind of chocolate chip.
Double chocolate chip, oatmeal chocolate chip, peanut butter chocolate chip, chocolate chip with craisins, with hazelnuts or walnuts…..
Doesn’t matter which kind they are, they will certainly gobble them up.
I however, don’t really care for them.
With bathing suit season upon us, I think I could be on to something here.
Make baked goods you don’t really care for.
So, you don’t eat as many.

You can make your own oat flour by adding to food processor and blending until a light flour is created.
