Because, it's Thursday.
Also because I got this book as a birthday present, and I'm a teensy bit obsessed...
Isn't it purty? I keep it out in my kitchen for all to see. Anyway, I decided to try out her cookie recipe, only altering it slightly to use what I had in the house. They are scrumptious.
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
Slightly adapted from What To Cook And How To Cook It
1 3/4 stick unsalted butter, room temp
3/4 cup fine sugar
1 large egg, yolk only
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups cake flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup oats
Chocolate chips, to taste
Preheat oven to 400. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar with an electric mixer until pale and fluffy. Add egg yolk and vanilla and mix for another couple of seconds, until combined.
Add flour, baking powder and salt. Mix until a stiff dough is formed. Stir in chocolate chips and oats.
Roll dough into 20 balls. Place on baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
Bake 8-10 minutes (my oven only needed 8).
