Cookies..Cookies and More Cookies...Blog Train..

Check back through my last several entries to see what makes the holidays special for me, the new fun crafts I made this 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 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 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 egg

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...

so at that you can tell I was baking for awhile I only do that once a year even know I love to bake

....Happy Holidays...

Your recipe sounds yummy! I am writing this one down and will be giving it a try this week. It must be easy to make and bake if you managed to make that many of them. You are not only the crafting queen, you are the baking queen too! I can't keep up with you. Blessings for the rest of your weekend. :) Tammy
