the 'Cookie Monster' strikes again....!

Me: "I ran out of Peanut Butter... and I only have 1/4 stick of butter...!
I can't make that cookies you asked for.."

Cookie Monster: "You can't OR you won't. Am sure you can conjure something up without Peanut Butter and substitute Butter with something else... "

OMG...! Here we go....the 'Cookie Monster' in my house strikes again...!

We made a deal.
I told 'Cookie Monster' that he had to spend time slaving over a hot stove and help me make the cookies he demanded or else he had to make do with the crackers in the jar...and he agreed...!

The Ingredients...All you need...
1 1/2 cup All Purpose flour
1 tspn Bicarbonate Soda
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Salt
2 tspn Cinnamon
1/2 tspn All Spice
2 Eggs
1 tsp Vanila
3/4 cup Shortening (or 1/2 cup Butter)
3/4 cup Brown Sugar
1/2 cup White Sugar
2 1/2 cups Rolled Oats
1/2 cups Raisins (optional - I have some leftover so I throw it in the batter)
1 cup Chocolate Chips
1 cup White Chocolate Chips
For that extra crunchineas, if you have nuts - walnuts, almonds, peacan - it doesn't matter...just throw them in the batter (1/2 cup will do..)

Prehead oven to 350 degs
Sift dry ingredients: Flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and all spice.
In separate large bowl, cream together shorthening (or butter if using), brown and white sugar until fluffy and creamy. Add eggs and vanila. Combine well.
Add flour mixture and stir until just combined.
Add oats, raisin and choc & white-chips (and nuts if you want to).
Spoon batter onto baking sheet, bake for about 8 mins or until golden brown.
Leave cookies for a few seconds on the tray then transfer to wire rack to cool.

Done...! & Enjoy your cookies.

These cookies bake up large, so you would expect a big heavy flavour.
But surprising though, they are light and refreshing. A perfect compliment to Tea or Milk! ..
I hope you will try them, because I know you will love them..!
Cookie Monster definately not complaining...!
