Cookies Anyone?

Good morning to all!

I thought I would post a recipe this morning. I have already mentioned how much our family loves nuts, especially pecans. Last week, a very dear friend of mine sent me a whole box of pecans! Without wasting time, the box was opened, the children began dutifully snacking and I broke out the Bosch to make some cookies.

Oatmeal Cookies

In the Bosch mixer with the cookie paddles, place:
3 sticks softened butter
2 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
3 eggs
1 Tbsp. vanilla
2/3 cup milk
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Mix on medium speed until very fluffy. Add:
1 tsp. sea salt (we use Real Salt)
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
4 cups freshly ground soft wheat flour

Mix together until well combined. Add:
5 cups freshly flaked oats
2 cups raisins
1 cup chopped pecans

Mix just until all of the ingredients are incorporated. Drop rounded tablespoons on to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes. Yummy!

Have a lovely Monday! ~*~Jessica~*~

these sound wonderful...but I have a question...can you use regular oatmeal if you don't know what fresh flaked oatmeal is? I am such a newbie still. I have had my wondermill for all of a month!

Yes! You can use quick oats :) Fresh flaked oats are oat groats (whole grain form) that have been flaked in a mill. An absolute money saver when you eat as much oatmeal as we do!

Nice to have you on our blog! ~*~Jessica~*~
