Monet, from Anecdotes and Apple Cores, inspired these cookies. She made some that were similar a few weeks ago that looked so delicious, I had to give them a shot. I didn’t use her recipe, but the idea is hers. If you haven’t visited her before, go…right now. She is one of those people who make the blog world a little brighter just by being here.
For these cookies, I used the “supposed” Neiman Marcus recipe. You know, the one with the ground up oatmeal that someone either stole or bought for $250? Anyway, I thought chocolate chips, cinnamon chips, what’s the difference in the long run?
These are crunchy cookies. In fact, one of my most vocal sons has been complaining that all of the cookies have been crunchy lately. When he was given a box of frozen oatmeal cookie dough the other day, he told me to watch how he baked them…and learn. Sheesh! Someone doesn’t want any more desserts for a while!
No one else complained. In fact, the cookies didn’t last very long at all.
