So, my replacement cookie paddles came this week for my BOSCH Universal PLUS Mixer. BUT, they didn't send me the metal driver to go with them (BUMMER!). So, I'm still at a cookie making standstill. However, in lieu of pictures of wonderful Christmas cookies this year, I thought I would share with you all my Grandma's recipe for Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies that are absolutely delicious! I mean- seriously!
Grandma Ida's Heavenly Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
First, cream together:
- 1 cup butter
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 3/4 Cup brown sugar
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 tsp soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- 1/2 tsp water
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups oats
- 1 12oz package of chocolate chips
And if you want to make it really easy on yourself, before you even think about baking you will order yourself a BOSCH Universal PLUS Mixer from Marmee's Bread Market with a set of cookie paddles!!
I also want to mention that Marmee has completely revamped her Homemaker's Mentor site for 2011 and restructured the monthly downloads into quarterly packages. She has really taken this program to a new level this year by also adding a Yahoo group for members of the Homemaker's Mentor, and quarterly HomeMaker Awards that will really encourage you to go a step farther in your homemaking! You should really check it out!
