    It's an adaptation I came up with for the traditional oatmeal cookie.

    Start with the recipe for basic oatmeal cookies.
    NO RAISINS. Not only is there nothing worse than a delicious confection being RUINED by the addition of horrid little raisins, they just wouldn't fit with the adaptation. I opted to replace the raisins with some mini chocolate chips...

    1C butter, softened
    1C sugar*
    1C packed brown sugar*
    2 eggs
    1t vanilla ext.
    2C flour
    1t bkg. soda
    1t salt*
    1t cinnamon
    3C dry oatmeal (quick oats)

    additions:
    mini chocolate chips
    raspberry preserves

    *I don't like things too sweet, plus I figured the preserves would add significant sweetness, so I used less sugar and brown sugar than the recipe called for. I also added a teeny bit more salt.

    METHOD:

    Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl. Beat in eggs one at a time. Add vanilla.

    In a separate bowl, combine flour, soda, salt and cinnamon. Stir into cream mixture.

    Add oats and stir. Add chocolate chips and stir.

    Refrigerate 1 hour, covered.


    Now here's where it gets interesting...

    Roll the dough into balls a little smaller than a golf ball...

    Place them on a prepared sheet (unless you're using seasoned stoneware) and press in the centers to form a little well...

    Don't feel guilty about snitching a little of the delicious dough...

    [​IMG]

    Spoon a dollop of the raspberry preserves into each formed cookie...

    [​IMG]

    Bake for 8-10 minutes at 375. If two sheets won't fit on the same rack, stagger them like this, and switch their positions halfway through...

    Chocolate chips rule. Raisins suck. FTW.

    While the cookies are cooling, form a barricade of random shit to keep your asshole dogs from eating them. :D
