Oatmeal Toffee Cookies Recipe

Homemade cookie cravings … I wonder if this will ever pass. There are so many possibilities, so many blends to make depending on the desired result. You like it crunchy or more like pure butter or really soft and mellow?

The choices are almost infinite depending on your desires. It’s simply a treat, whether it’s with a dessert, coffee, tea or a glass of milk.

Good to know: natural oatmeal is available in supermarkets (not only in organic shops), either in the cereal department or in the health department. Here I use fast-cooking fine oatmeal flakes.

Important: these cookies should not over baked. The color should be golden, but not brown. Once the cookies are ready, it is important to let them cool on the plate, then, using a spatula, move them and cool them off on a grid. They’re very fragile when they’re hot though.

So, I woke up this morning with a plan- to finish a 30 page research paper.

Instead, I went to the gym.

And then I ran some errands.

And then I finally did some research.

Public service announcement- I am now totally an expert on the ‘three strikes’ law in California, so if any of y’all are convicted felons and need someone to argue why the law violates your Eighth Amendment rights… I’m your girl.

And then I got bored and made lunch.

 

(Best smoothie I’ve ever made. Recipe to come!)

And then I looked at my pile of work and thought about how much work I have to do.

So I made dinner instead.

 

(Eggs and jam, carrots, broccoli, and strawberries)

But the most delicious way to procrastinate on writing a paper? Baking cookies!

 

How could I concentrate on my work when this bag was staring at me all day? It was screaming, “Bake me into oatmeal cookies!”, so I obliged.

Baking is such a good stress reliever! It lets me forget all about my paper… and another project I have due next week… and the finals I have to study for… well, almost lets me forget.

I’m all out of butter. I guess that means it’s time to finish this paper. 17 more pages, 17 more pages, 17 more pages…
