I have always wanted to be famous for something, anything really. Not the kind of famous where people stop you on the streets and you cant live a normal life famous. But think about it...Enya, quite famous and I could not tell you what she looked like. That kind of famous.
I always think If I could just come up with the "million dollar idea".
When I was really little we had to invent something in school one day. I invented wind shield wipers for your glasses. Clever right?
Well I cant say I am going to become wickedly famous for this, but for the first time EVER, I literally threw together a bunch of ingredients that I had left over in my cupboard and it made for a FINE cookie.
I love eating oatmeal cookie dough. In fact, when I am eating oatmeal packets, I will put enough water in it just to make it all stick together, but not enough to make oatmeal consistency because do you want to know why? It taste like warm oatmeal cookie dough. Delish.
Back to the cookies. I thought I would share with you all because it was a hit at my work and Russ's work.

      1 cup butter
      1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • Hand full of white chocolate chips
  • Hand full of toffee chips

  • I baked them at 350 F for 10 ish min.

    Russ kept watching me like I was a mad person because I am a TERRIBLE cook.
    I will have to tell you about the time I tried to make homemade Cafe Rio pork salads from scratch...disaster.
    Any recipe you give me that you just "cant screw up" I will. It sucks.
    So the fact that I wasn't following a recipe was oober scary to him.
    But these were delicious and I think you should try them.
    I didn't put that many toffee chips in, only because I didn't have that many left, but just a little hint is good.
    If anyone makes them, you will have to let me know if you thought they were as good as we did.

    Side note** If anyone has a good recipe for Cafe Rio Pork salad stuff, I would love it.


    1. They look yummy! I remember when you and I made some miniature cheddar biscuits, like the kind at Red Lobster, they were quite delicious in my opinion!

    2. I think you're a great cook! And you owe it to yourself to make these cookies again for your husband to show yourself you really are a good cook. Maybe tonight? :)
