A friend and I had an idea to venture into starting a cookie company. Then we decided it wasn’t really where the money was. You see, we’re not really about doing what makes us happy, we want to be rich and travel. So many people are about the happiness factor and I really don’t understand this thinking. It boggles my mind.
I made this oatmeal cookie for what was to be one of the options that would arrive in your mailbox. It’s pretty straight forward. I can’t really elaborate on a cookie. OK I will, it’s more the chewy sugary kind of cookie than a fluffy cake like cookie. It has that crunchy edge and a chewy morsel center. I am not a huge fan of oatmeal cookies to begin with and I especially don’t like the thick cake type of oatmeal. I like my oatmeal like any good American. Loaded with sugar! Think of this cookie almost like a florentine cookie. Not much to really look at and are pretty delicate but sweet and delicious. I also used white chocolate instead of raisins. This is a personal preference, obviously, but that’s because I’m not a huge fan of raisins either. You can of course do what you want, as long as you don’t harm anybody. I love oatmeal and throw in a handful of raisins but hand me a oatmeal raisin cookie and I’ll smack your hand? Weird.
