Aloha. How was your weekend?
On Friday I got
out my summer spa swap package out! I stuck to the basic elements of washcloth and handmade soap. I handmade an envelope and card to go with them. My swap partner should receive this today! I’ll blog about the contents tomorrow.
I waited for my honey to come home from work so we could go on our first run together. He took it easy on me since I’m working on two miles right now. The kahuna said he noticed my good form.
After dinner I started baking while I had the raisins soaking in Bulleit Bourbon for the past two hours; I got this idea from Amy of Bag of Chocolates. Our ohana had plans to oink out at my brother’s on Saturday to celebrate our dad’s birthday. The cookies were going to be our birthday present to my daddy.
My dad liked my oatmeal cookies from this recipe in the past as he had told my mum they were soft enough to bite into; I inherited the bone loss gene from him and he from his father.
I didn’t put pecans in. Instead, I substituted with a cup of Nestle’s chocolate chips. I had six drops of dough on each baking sheet, only putting in one sheet at a time. I baked one way for seven minutes and like Martha Stewart, turned the pan around afterwards for another seven. They came out soft enough to bite! I even got 39 cookies out of the recipe too.
What’s your favorite cookie recipe?
