I was a grump today and T got the brunt of it so I decided to make cookies for him while he’s out (forgiveness is through the stomach, right?). We don’t have much in the way of groceries at the moment so I had to do some scrounging through the cupboards: I came up with enough to make The Delicious Life‘s Oatmeal Cranberry cookies (recipe).
I didn’t have a full cup of dried cranberries so I mixed in a generous cup of chopped dried prunes. I also don’t have an electric mixer of any sort so I just threw all the ingredients in a bowl and stirred – wasted a bit of oatmeal at the bottom of the bowl but nothing major. Baked up nice but took a bit longer than the “9 minutes 45 seconds” the recipe calls for (I’m not that exact – I played on my computer, forgot about the cookies, remembered them, opened the stove and poked them, and then sat back down again only to repeat the process a little bit later…). First batch I baked from ball form but the rest of them I squished down with a fork – they seemed to bake through better.
