Oatmeal cookies with a twist
I am on a mission to create really good cookie doughs that can be preshaped and frozen. I want to fill up my freezer with lots and lots of different flavors of cookie dough. This way, whenever I need dessert in a pinch, I don't have to stress.
I have also been recruited to make cookies each week for both religious school and the hebrew school. Rather than making cookies each week, I want to have these doughs prepared and ready to bake (this way I don't have to be responsible for actually baking them each week). Having the pre-made doughs, perfectly shaped with instructions on the packaging makes this simple enough that anyone could bake off the cookies.
I found this recipe on a website I don't really use that often, About.com (recipe here). I have an oatmeal base that I think is kind of perfect. I should have just used my favorite recipe. This was not a great one for me. My kids really liked them, but I wasn't crazy about it.
Next time, I will make my favorite base and then add the toffee, maybe some coconut and some sort of dried fruit.
