Woke up this morning to snow, and lots of it! They even cancelled church. As I was looking out my back patio I saw these roses I had put on my table in the summer and I had to smile thinking how pretty the roses were blooming in the snow!
Among some other things I did today, I decided I would bake some cookies. The last few times I tried baking cookies, they just weren’t turning out, well this time I made sure I used the stick butter made for baking and that must have been the culprit because they actually turned out this time.
After I made them, Doug informed me that they were his favorite cookie, who knew? I’ve had the recipe for a long time but I just don’t bake that much. When I decided to make cookies, I remembered this recipe being one of my favorites! Here’s the recipe if you’re interested.
Pride of Iowa Cookies
1 c white sugar 1 c. brown sugar
1 c oleo 1 tsp. baking soda
2 eggs, beaten 1 tsp. baking powder
1 c coconut 1/2 tsp. salt
2 c oatmeal
2 c flour 1 tsp vanilla
1 c nuts (optional)
Mix together and drop by teaspoon on greased cookie sheet. Bake for 9 minutes at 375.
Doug says they are really good with a glass of cold milk. I had a cup of coffee with mine!
