Oatmeal Cookies
 

With really awful weather comes an urge to bake. Thus, I offer a cookie recipe. It’s not exactly literature, but the result will taste great and make your house smell good.

 
You will need:

A 9x9 casserole pan, or something like that. I have used a pie pan when the casserole dish was busy, and it worked just fine.

A medium saucepan.
A cutting board.
An apple corer, and a peeler.
 
Ingredient List:
 
1 cup flour
1 cup oats
2/3 cup dark brown sugar
Dash salt
1 stick butter. No margarine, no compromises!
 
2 granny smith apples
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch of ground cloves
Pinch of nutmeg
Pinch of ginger

(A pinch: pour a little into your hand. Pinch it. Whatever comes up is “a pinch.”

 
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
 

Core and peel the apples. Chop them up. Put them in the saucepan. Add spices. Add water. Cover and cook on medium high heat till it starts to boil. Lower heat, and let cook for 8 minutes or till apples are mushy. Stir them up so the spices are well mixed in.

 

While the apples are cooking, put the stick of butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Nuke it for 8 seconds at a time, till it is soft. Mash it up with a fork. Add oats, flour, baking soda, and sugar. Mix it up with the fork, until it clumps up when you press down on it. This means the butter has completely worked its way through the mix.

 

Get a one cup measure full of the oat/butter mixture. Put it off to the side.

 

Pour the rest into the pan. Use a measuring cup to push down on it, clumping it down into the bottom of the pan.

 
Pour the apples in on top of it.
 

Sprinkle the reserved oatmeal over the apples. Make sure it is well spread around.

 

Put it in the oven and bake it for 30-40 minutes. Cut into two inch squares in the pan. Cookies are best when still warm, of course, but if they have been in the tin, you can warm them up by putting them in the microwave for 5 seconds.
