Thursday, November 28, 2013 1 0

Baking cookies has been one of my favourite pastimes since I was a little girl. I remember first learning to bake cookies when I was so small I needed a chair to stand on to reach the counter. Ever since then, cookies have been my thing. Friends have commented at the speed at which I can whip up a batch. And it’s true, baking cookies just feels so easy and cathartic to me – I love it.

Everyone needs a good oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe under their belt – it’s a kitchen staple. Here’s mine:


Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
2 cups oats
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup coconut (optional)
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl. Mix in vanilla and egg. Stir in oats, flour, coconut, baking soda, and salt. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop batter onto greased cookie sheet and bake for 9-11 minutes at 350 degrees F.
