I am baking lots of cookies as I anxiously await the arrival of my first grandchild.
So far I have made peanut butter cookies (the ones that feature a Hershey kiss), tea cakes (my mother called them Russian tea cakes but I think in 2019 it is better to drop the Russia reference) and Salted Oatmeal Cookies with Dark Chocolate.
The salted oatmeal cookie recipe is from a 2015 recipe I saved from Real Simple magazine. I have never made them but they now qualify as a top favorite. Definitely better than the peanut butter cookies. It really is an affront to a Hershey kiss to be stuck atop a cookie base. I prefer eating the kisses straight up, thereby avoiding the unnecessary calories from cookie dough. That is how I diet.
I have included the recipe for the Salted Oatmeal Cookies.
Next up: I plan to make a batch of Tollhouse chocolate chip cookies. My grandbaby better arrive soon. I am running out of freezer space.
