Ok those that have been interested in my once a month cooking. I have now added some new arsenal to my stock. Pre-packaged cookies.
You know those days or night when you want a fresh homemade cookie but don't want to go through the whole deal of making them? Well here's a simple and inexpensive way to go about that urge.
I found the recipe for this oatmeal with chocolate chips (instead of raisins) here at Fake it Frugal and thought I would try some out.
I set up a bunch of quart size bags and set up adding all the ingredients assembly line fashion. Then put them in a storage box for use later.
Wouldn't you know it though, about an hour after putting them safely away for another day, the men of the house decided they wanted a cookie.
So not only did I get to see how easy it was to set up a few months supply of cookie mixes today, we are also going to be able to tell you first hand..............are they really any good? Are they really easy to whip up a batch on a moments notice?
Here's the answer to that first question
Yes they ARE THAT GOOD, my whole house smells like cinnamon and warm cookies and they taste as good as if I had taken an hour to make them.
Easy? It couldn't get much easier than this (well it could if you had paid for the package at the store) but I have to tell you, these cookies taste FRESH HOMEMADE, those mixes always leave a little after taste in my mouth. They do in a pinch but they are NOT homemade, however, these mixes here that you make yourself....................NOTHING BUT HOMEMADE GOODNESS.
And I have to tell you they are so easy to make and quick that Craig who likes to take cookies to work for his morning break even said he could do a batch while he was having his morning coffee before he went to work. I think that's a wonderful idea, all his friends would think he has an awesome wife at home that gets up at 4am to make him fresh cookies LOL
