Featured Recipe: Margie’s Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
Just in time for back-to-school and back-to-bake sale season, have we got a cookie recipe for you!
“When remodeling my kitchen a few years back, I actually designed the whole project around my favorite oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe,” said Margie Fendley of Summerville, S.C.
That’s what Margie told us, but we have to admit we were a bit skeptical. Re-doing the whole kitchen over one recipe? How did that work exactly?
“Mixer, ingredients, spices, baking pans, cooling racks and utensils were all within arm’s reach and were between the sink and oven,” Marie said. “I found that the arrangement served me well for many other recipes also.”
The aroma filling Alicia’s kitchen as she tested and photographed Margie’s Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies was topped only by their flavor.
These really ARE special, Alicia reports. And lots of readers of our newspaper column made the cookies after we published the recipe. They loved them also.
Try them and let us know what YOU think!
Our Cookbooks rock!
What you're saying..
I started reading Desperation Dinners along about the time I became a "stay-at-home" mom (what an oxymoron!) and needed both intellectual stimulation and something different - ANYTHING different - for dinner.
In those early days, I cooked strictly by the rule book, no deviations. But over the years, you two have given me the confidence to try rotini instead of penne, to substitute, experiment, become confident. Thank you!!
Honestly - - all three of my DD books are stained, tattered, splattered, and loved. I've given DD as gifts to new moms, to new wives, and to young friends just out of college. Can't think of a more practical, useful present.
I appreciate all the recipes, but really like the bulk-cooking ideas.
Thanks for everything!!
