I finally baked something in our new house! We are still trying to get the last things done, a few more boxes to unpack and our new washer and dryer were delivered yesterday. Slowly, we are getting settled.
I wanted to bake oatmeal cookies last weekend, but I didn't have enough time. I was determined to bake something this weekend, so I took some butter out of the refrigerator and left it on the counter to soften all afternoon. Then I mixed up these cookies using a medium mixing bowl and a wooden spoon while Darren was cooking our salmon. I baked them using a single cookie sheet, and they were ready in about half an hour. The yield was 10 large-ish cookies.
