Sometimes you just need a cookie! When everything in your world is wrong sometimes a batch of oatmeal cranberry cookies can momentarily right the world.
Right the Wrong with Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies
OMGosh! Who can relate? Everything is crazy! For our family, my husband is working 150 miles away and is only home on the weekends. We are trying to finish up our house so we can sell it and move into our RV. The kids are on electronics detox and home school school work catch up. Jesus give me the strength. Just looking around the house at all the work we still need to do to sell our house induces chest pains, shortness of breath…anxiety.
Today I’m going to struggle through housework, chores, character training, schoolwork, and lets not forget potty training. I know there will be extra laundry because of the beautiful rain we had last night and the mud and potty training. But I have sweet relief coming…oatmeal cranberry cookies. LOL
Seriously, I love to cook and an afternoon sweet treat or the hope of trying out a new recipe can give me something to look forward to.
The Oatmeal Cranberry Cookie
Ya’ll I never have brown sugar but brown sugar is easy to replicate with white sugar and some molasses. This recipe uses no brown sugar. I also like to use fresh ground einkorn flour. If you don’t have einkorn flour that is ok just use 1 1/2cups of regular organic flour.
