Lately I'm afraid I've annoyed someone who never liked me that much to begin with. And, I'm a really likable person. Now, this someone has a lot of control in a situation and I'm trying to get back in his good graces. Although we're paying him and he's good at his job, I still want him to like us and do a really, really good job for us. So, I'm baking cookies.
If you want someone to like you, to make a new friend, or to smooth things over, try this recipe. None of that sugar-free healthy baking this time around (okay, I couldn't help myself and didn't use all white flour). No, this is the good stuff. I'll let you know if it works!
Side note: These would be awesome for making ice cream sandwiches!
Chocolate & Peanut Butter Chip Oatmeal Cookies (makes 3 dozen)
3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour (can use all regular flour if you want)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 sticks butter, softened
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 large egg
2 tablespoons milk
1 cup chocolate chips
3/4 cup peanut butter chips (can use all chocolate if you can't find these but they're sooo good)
1 cup quick or old-fashioned oats
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine flours, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a small bowl. In a mixing bowl cream the butter. Add the sugars and cream until fluffy. Add the vanilla and egg. Alternately add the milk and flour mixture at a lower speed. Stir in the chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, and oats.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the center is still soft and the edges are crisp and the cookies are lightly browned. Cool on the baking sheet for a couple of minutes and then transfer to a wire rack.
Update: Our meeting was cancelled but the cookies still taste good.
