Today, it was cold. Really cold, snowy and quite windy. The kind of horrible wind that sends chills through you at the mere sound of it outside your window. As a result of this (and an official “blizzard warning”), today was a snow day.
After sleeping in, not playing my jury, not going to class and tidying my room a bit I decided it was time to study. And by study, I really just mean I made some cookies.
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 ½ cup flour
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking powder
3 cups oatmeal
Optional chopped dried cherries
Cream the butter and sugars until smooth and a little fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla. Mix in all the dry ingredients, minus the oatmeal. Once those are combined add the oatmeal. Really hard.Drop cookies are all pretty much the same, procedure-wise. It makes me feel repetitive.
To half of this batch I added about half a cup of chopped dried cherries. I had found them in my pantry, and it just seemed like the thing to do.
