Craving Something Sweet
I was craving some kind of baked good like crazy the other day, sometimes at 4pm nothing but buttery cabs will wake me up. I happened to have all the makings of oatmeal cookies, which aren't usually a favorite but I wasn't about to turn my nose up at either. This is a pretty standard recipe, but I made it "healthy" and "interesting" by using WW flour and dried apricots.
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 2/3 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup dried apricots, chopped
Preheat oven to 350.
Combine flour, baking soda and powder, salt and spices.
Cream butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla.
Mix in flour mixture until well incorporated, then add oats and apricots.
Drop tablespoon fulls onto parchment lined baking sheet, flatten slightly.
Bake about 10 min. Let cook on the baking sheet for a min before transferring to cool on a wire rack.
Eat several right away, you've earned it!
