Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Bars

Oatmeal raisin cookies are at the top of the all time favorite cookie list. In fact, in recent surveys of home made cookie favorites, the chocolate chip cookie was first, peanut butter second and oatmeal raisin third. I would agree that chocolate chip is my favorite, but I’m at a loss to pick a clear second or third place … peanut butter and oatmeal raisin are tied at second place. My husband is definitely a peanut butter cookie fan, and when I make a batch of those, I just plan on leaving the eating to him! At least when I make oatmeal raisin cookies, I have a chance of eating some of them! I’ve found that bar cookies last just a little longer than cookies made in the traditional “drop” manner. They’re also easier to bake, since it’s just one trip through the oven for the pan full!  Print Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Bars Prep Time: 20 minutesCook Time: 30 minutesTotal Time: 50 minutes Yield: 24 barsServing Size: 1 barCalories per serving: 65Fat per serving: 2 Ingredients1 cup butter or margarine 1 cup white sugar 1 cup brown sugar 2 eggs 1 tsp vanilla 2 tsp cinnamon 2 cups flour 1 … Continue reading →

Coconut White Chocolate & Cranberry No Bake Cookies

Coconut, white chocolate, oatmeal, cranberries. There are few things that can make me happier. Puppies, a cuppa tea and a good book come close. You’ll agree once you try these simple no bake cookies. They are good. It’s hard to think of anything better while you’re eating some of these delicious cookies. Alternative to Chocolate While back, one of my friends asked me if I had a no bake cookie recipe that didn’t rely on peanut butter and chocolate. I looked around and I did not. I’ve been thinking about this recipe since then and finally put it together and wrote it down. As a test recipe, this turned out pretty darn good on the first shot! My husband kept poking his head in the kitchen saying, “If you have any extra chocolate, I’ll eat it.” What a helping hand kind of guy he is!   Print Coconut White Chocolate & Cranberry No Bake Cookies Prep Time: 30 minutesTotal Time: 30 minutes Yield: 2 dozServing Size: 2 cookiesCalories per serving: 188Fat per serving: 10 Ingredients8 oz White Chocolate 1/2 c Oatmeal 1/2 c Coconut Flakes 1/2 c dried CranberriesInstructionsMelt the white chocolate.

Rainbow Treats Recipe

    My family is planning several get togethers over the holiday week. Of course, we always plan these events to be pot luck so that one person isn’t stuck fixing all the food. Depending on the day and the time of the event, we’ll be carrying in appetizers, side dishes for dinners, or cookies. Sometimes it’s a challenge coming up with a recipe that doesn’t require too much time or effort. For the cookie carry in, I’m bringing Rainbow Treats. This cookie isn’t really a cookie, but it is a very popular snack with the folks. Kids and adults gobble them up. You may know this treat by another name: Rice Krispies Treat. I wanted something colorful and fun, so I bought a box of puffed rice cereal that featured multi-colored pieces. These would make great treats at a baby shower, or mother – daughter tea party, so you might want to clip this recipe and save it for later! Rainbow Treats Recipe 3 TB butter or margarine 10 oz marshmallows 6 cups puffed rice cereal, in rainbow colors Butter a 9×13 baking pan and set aside. Melt the butter in a large pan over low heat.
