It’s been a little over a week since I last blogged. I’ve been a little busy lately with my bestie Vivian Han’s 21st in LA last weekend, and a midterm that I had this morning (I’m dreading week 5 when I have 3 in a row!). Anyway, I have still been baking of course, so I wanted to make sure to post this recipe of the oatmeal cookies that I made recently.
These are POMEGRANATE chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. I wanted to try and be creative by using dried pomegranates, but to be honest they just taste like cranberries in the cookies =P. Anyway, enjoy!
- 3/4 cups packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 an egg (funny, i know. I halved the original recipe)
- 1 cup quick cooking oats
- 3/4 all purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup dried pomegranates (or cranberries)
This is a super easy recipe that makes about 20-24 cookies. :)
First, cream together the softened butter and brown sugar until soft and creamy. With an electric mixer, mix in vanilla extract and half of an egg (I usually scramble it into a bowl and pour half into the mix).
Next, add in the oats, flour, baking soda, and salt. Kneed the ingredients together to form an oatmeal cookie dough.
Finally, add in the fun ingredients (pomegranates, chocolate chips) and the dough is ready to bake. Unlike the chocolate chip recipe that was previously posted, oatmeal cookies will turn out tasting and looking fine if you bake them right away…which means you can eat them right away!
On a side note…here’s a picture of the new kitchen!!! I love all the cabinet and counter space, as it spoils me with plenty of space for baking. ^__^
