Check back through my last several entries to see what makes the holidays special for me, the new fun crafts I made this year.my annual Christmas craft party .and share in my annual cookie swap with the recipe I used this year...we love to crumple these and eat them like cereal...
I made 16 dozen cookies for a cookie swap at my work..the last time I got to do one of these only 9 ladies signed up...well it has grown......now we have to make 12 dozen to swap and I made 4 dozen to send home to kids. This is how I packaged them all up..These are the boxes from our last feed at work , containers from the Buffalo Wings and Rings. Everyone thought I was nuts carrying these boxes out they all wondered what I was doing with them..they were not fun to wash let me tell ya...lol...anyways I made Oatmeal Scottchies this year...
Oatmeal Scottchies recipe I used:
1/2 cup (1 stick) margarine or butter, softened
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1-1/4 cups flour
1 cup old-fashioned or quick-cooking oats
1 tsp. CALUMET Baking Powder
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup PLANTERS Pecan Pieces
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
1 Mashed bananas
PREHEAT oven to 350°F. Beat margarine and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy.Add in Mashed banana.. Blend in the egg. Combine flour, oats and baking powder. Add to margarine mixture alternately with the milk, beating until well blended after each addition. Stir in the pecans and butterscotch chips.
DROP rounded teaspoonfuls of dough, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased baking sheets.
BAKE 12 to 15 min. or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks; cool completely. Store in tightly covered container at room temperature.
Makes: About 4 doz. or 24 servings, 2 cookies each...
