Cookies

Hi Friends

Thought I’d pop in and show you another gift set I made for a co-worker. 

Around the office I’m known for bringing in home-baked cookies.  I love cookies, LOVE. THEM. SO. MUCH. For birthdays, you can usually count on me bringing in some sort of cookie. Before Christmas, we had an office party, and I brought in goodies. One of my co-workers made a very pronounced point of telling us her birthday was January 3rd, hint hint hint. It was pretty cute. (She is a big fan of my cookies). 

So, how could I not bring in something for her?? Answer, I couldn’t neglect her.  Since it was for her birthday, I decided to do a little gift ensemble. Here’s what I came up with:

The cookies are oatmeal with chunks of Hershey bars in them. SO YUMMY, one of my favs.  (I think she was quite happy too which is the most important thing). 

Here’s the recipe for the cookies in case you’re intersted in giving them a try:

1 cup butter (no substitutes, I mean it), softened

3/4 cup brown sugar

3/4 cup sugar

1 tsp vanilla

2 eggs

2 1/4 cups flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

2 cups oats

2 (8 oz) Hershey bars chopped into chunks

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

Cream butter, add sugars one at a time and thoroughly mix. Add in vanilla and eggs.

Mix flour, soda, and salt. Gradually add to butter mixture. Mix in oats and then add the Hershey bar chunks

Use parchment paper on cookie sheets (really this is the best)

Drop cookies onto cookie sheet and bake for 8-12 minutes (I like my cookies soft, so I tend to undercook them a bit)

ENJOY!!! MMMmmmmm cookies!

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs and blessings
