Weather: 38 degrees, crisp and clear, not a cloud in the sky
What I’m listening to: Passion Hymns
I’m a chewy gooey cookie fan. If you’re looking for a crunchy cookie or a cakey cookie, I’m not your girl. I make a lot of cookies – it’s sort of my go-to dessert for the family – and nearly all of my cookie recipes have the chewy gooey factor.
This particular recipe is adapted from an Alaskan wilderness lodge and it’s got all those great things you might expect from a remote vacation spot: warmth, comfort, texture. Mmm chocolate, oatmeal, and raisins… yes, all three… trust me. Imagine you’ve just come into the lodge from a gorgeous, crisp afternoon on the water and that fresh-from-the-oven smell greets you at the door and you spy a plate full of warm cookies at the fireside. Grab a hot cup of coffee, sit down for a while, and take a load off.
