Still Figuring.

If you look below this, you’ll see the real post. Which I posted as a link. Because I have no idea what I’m doing. None.

So as you follow this recipe that I started explaining below, you can awkwardly scroll down  to see pictures. How embarrassing.

Anyway. For the Pumpkin-Oatmeal-Craisin-Better-For-You cookies (which was the original title below before I made the Great Error) you’ll need…

1 cup of flour. Add this to your bowl along with 1 teaspoon baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon baking soda. And a half teaspoon salt. (photo)

In another bowl, put in a cup of brown sugar, and two tablespoons of softish butter. (photo) Cream this all together (photo) and add in one large egg and just under a half cup of pure, all natural pumpkin puree (if you’ve got it). Lastly, you’ll need a teaspoon of vanilla extract (photo). Mix all of this together, then pour in the most important elements: 1 1/3 cup rolled oats, 1/2 cup dried craisins, and 1/8 cup chocolate chips. Mix it up (photo) and drop by the spoonful onto a super well greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for about ten minutes then eat one while its still super warm with a glass of cider. (photo). Then, fill your cookie jar and feel like a successful old fashioned housewife, which is a nice feeling when you work six days a week. 

Here is the full recipe, with  my alterations.

1 cup flour (spoon flour into dry-measure cup and level off)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup (packed) light brown sugar
1 large egg
1/2 cup pure pumpkin puree1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 1/3 cups rolled oats (not instant)

1/2 cup craisins

1/8 cup dark chocolate chips

bake at 375 for ten minutes


And there you have it.

Sometimes I do eat things other than sweets….you’ll see.
