Oatmeal Cookies

After our lunch date at Caloys Kambingan House (goat meat eatery) with my officemates last Saturday, Royce dropped me off to our unit, and then he went to attend the High Priest Group meeting at Arellano Chapel. So thankful I was as I thought, “Weekend, finally”. Only in weekends and holidays that I have time to do the some of the things I wanted to do, particularly, doze at siestas. I really wanted to nap but Colby was awfully bugging me to switch on the computer and play games. I didn’t want to get upset thus I got up and let him play. After I turned the PC on, I sat down on our sofa, watching Colby enjoying his games, and I said to myself, “Well, I guess, this is my chance to do baking again.”

Here is what I have cooked in my oven.


1 pc. egg, well-beaten

½ cup Sun-Maid raisin

½ cup Dari Crème buttermilk, melted

1 cup brown sugar

¼ cup chopped nuts

1 ¼ cup Quaker Oats

1 ¼ cup A1 baking flour

1 tbsp. Calumet baking powder

1 tbsp. Arm and Hammer baking soda

1 tsp. McCormick cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees

2. Combine egg, raisin, buttermilk, brown sugar and nuts. Set aside.

3. Combine the remaining ingredients on a separate bowl.

4. Mix the flour mixture to the butter mixture. This will be stiff.

5. Drop and flat a tablespoonful of the mixture unto ungreased pan 1/2 inch apart each cookie.

6. For chewy cookie, bake for 12 minutes. For crispy cookie, bake for 15 minutes.

7. Remove from pan.

8. Serve with iced Kool-aid strawberry juice.

Makes 30 cookies.

After baking, Colby and I ate some of the cookies and went back to play. It was a nice afternoon. I didn’t have the luck to sleep though, maybe next week.

Royce came home around 7pm and we went out for Pigar-Pigar.
