Oatmeal Scotchies

I'm not sure how many of you know it, but I was married to a professional cook. An actual, professional baker. Now that Ell's gone, my house has been void of anything that resembles real cooking, baking, etc., for a long time. So when x-mas rolled around (yeah, I said x-mas, deal with it), I got a hankering for some of my favorite cookies and decided to try my hand at making them myself. Unfortunately, a horrible stomach virus rolled through my circle of friends leaving them unwanting of making, let alone eating, cookies. Skip ahead to this evening... and I decided to make those cookies.

So I pre-heated the oven, filled the counter with ingredients, found a couple mixing bowls and an old mixer, packed a pipe with appropriately named tobacco called, "Christmas Cookie", turned on a Manchester Orchestra CD, and brewed a pot of coffee in case the project went longer than expected.

Well, despite the absence of a professional baker (even though I'd rather have her here doing the baking), the cookies turned out awesome. Here's some pics of the process:






So, who want's to come over and share in the goodness of Sam's Oatmeal Scotchies?

I love the way you set the baking mood. Very nice touch.

I, of course wouldn't touch oatmeal, but they look fabulous, in theory! ;-)
