although i enjoy it, i rarely bake–mostly due to the fact that i have zero self-control when it comes to not quickly devouring my entire batch of baked goods. yesterday, however, i got an excuse to bake some cookies. i baked some of grandma’s recipe oatmeal raisin chocolate chip cookies (for this batch i left out the raisins). because of the spices in the recipe, and the fact that i normally have them at the holidays, i felt like it was christmas in may! it was the first time i made them, and i was pleased with the results.
here is the dough:
and the finished product
