Cooked: Save the Day Cookies...


 
'member that little recipe I said I was going to share with you wonderfuls?!? Well, as promised, I whipped up a little virtual "recipe card" so you all can make them too!
I call these my Save the Day Cookies...because that is exactly what happened...or maybe they could be call the Desperate Stay-At-Home Mom Cookies, but let's all agree, that's a bit chunky...no, not you guys...the title...sheesh...though I may say, I wouldn't mind the extra chunky pounds gained from these suckers...cause they are that good...if I do say so myself....

Honestly, the recipe just kind of happened...I was home...the kids were hungry...they acted like they were 3rd world country starving for real...and I was about to go crawl in a kitchen cabinet and twitch for a little while...when I had a eureka moment! Now, this does not happen a whole lot...( I know you are all shocked by that lol) so when it does I just kinda go with it and hope it tastes good in the end. I knew I wanted to make some type of cookies so I stood in front of my pantry until I heard an audible voice speak to me from the cereal/oatmeal shelf... "pick meeeeee....." Well, maybe it was more like a "oh yeah, I have instant oatmeal.." kind of a moment, but go with me on this... So I started googling to see if instant oatmeal could be used to make cookies...and whatayaknow...it can! So then, following the sort-of steps to this recipe I came up with the below cookie recipe!

...now don't these just scream yummy! 


 basically I halved the majority of the ingredients from the recipe I had...I used flavored instant oatmeal and added raisins!

If you decide to try the recipe I would love to hear how it turned out for you and if you made any changes/additions to the recipe how that turned out as well! Oh, and feel free to pass it along if you like... I always like a good cookie recipe in my bag of cooking tricks...

Hope your Wednesday is fabulous so far...I am working on a DIY for you all that I will probably share on Friday!

What yummy treats have you all been baking lately?
