cookie coma

Bede asked me to bake cookies yesterday, so that’s what we did today. He asked me by placing a storebought cookie on a baking sheet and declaring “make cookies HOT!”

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies (Large Family Edition)
Makes About 100 Cookies

4 sticks butter, room temp
4 eggs, room temp
3 cups brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking soda
3 cups all-purpose flour
6 cups oatmeal
1 package chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Mix butter and sugar, then eggs and vanilla. Add flour and baking soda, mix well. Add cinnamon and oatmeal, oatmeal in two parts. Rest your hands from all the stirring to make sure the cookie sheets are clean cause at my house they never are, they’re on the stove still dirty from the garlic toast. Finally, add the chocolate chips. Drop rounded spoonfuls on ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 9 minutes. They’ll be lovely and flat and chewy with crispy edges. Then eat so many you pass out.

They taste the best if you have a little autistic boy capering about chortling and saying “cookies HOT! ee hee hee hee hmmhnn!” but I understand that may not be possible, pity.

    Do we live in the same house by chance? No, wait, I checked…there is only one kidlet running around on most days :) Mine were dirty from garlic toast the last time I made cookies!

    • I use a 13 x 18 inch jelly roll pan to bake cookies on, and I get 3 across and 4 down. I know that doesn’t really answer your question. Um.

      Like, 2.5 inches? They spread out bigtime. If you’re making bigger cookies definitely err on the side of too much space for the first sheet to see how they spread.
