Happy Tasty Tuesday! Ready for a recipe for some yummy cookies? If so, you are in the right place. This week’s recipe is for Oatmeal Chip Cookies from the cookbook, “Reiff’s Recipes” which I picked up last fall while up in Amish Country with my momma on the Buggies and Buds Shop Hop. We had stopped at a new-to-us farm market in Ephrata, PA, Reiff’s Farm Market, which had lots of pumpkins and gourds out front – that was what caught my eye first. Inside was all sorts of produce, fresh picked flowers, baked items, and refrigerated/frozen items. And their selection of apples was amazing – lots of varieties that I had never heard of. It was a nice little market and one we’ll stop in again. And of course, when I saw their cookbook, I just had to get a copy.
This week’s recipe is the first recipe for me to fix out of this book. I was looking for a cookie to make for Danny to take to share with his disc golf buddies (I usually try to make something sweet for them every other week as a special treat – they have big sweet tooths) and our neighbor who I take dinner to once a week during this virus, since she lives alone and can’t have her friends stop by. She also loves her sweets. Who doesn’t, right?
So if you are in the cookie making and eating mood, try out this week’s recipe…
Oatmeal Chip Cookies, page 121, “Reiff’s Recipes”
2 c. butter, softened
2 c. sugar
2 c. brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
6. quick oats
3 c. flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 c. chocolate chips
Cream butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla. Add remaining ingredients. Chill dough 1 hour. Bake at 350 degrees for 11 to 13 minutes.
These turned out quite yummy and were devoured by the disc golf crew in record time. I want to keep this recipe handy for Christmas cookie baking too, since it makes a nice size batch of cookies. Don’t they look delicious?
Hope you are doing well and staying healthy.
