Every once in a while, I get a massive craving for cookie dough (shhhh…don’t tell Bill; he thinks already thinks I’m a bit insane!)…and most often it’s oatmeal cookie dough. Unfortunately for me, only my oldest and I will eat the baked result…and all I wanted was a couple spoonfuls of dough! What’s a girl to do???
Well, this week I had a delightful reason to bake up a batch of oatmeal cookies My friend, Erin, of Dinners, Dishes and Desserts, was hosting an online bake sale to benefit all those displaced from the wildfires in her home state of Colorado. I was happy to bake up a batch to for this worthy cause. I used my favorite base recipe from Ina Garten and added mini M and M’s just for fun. They were chewy and wonderful…and, in case you were wondering, the dough tasted divine. Please visit Erin’s blog to see how you can bid on my cookies (a fresh batch, of course) or any of the other tasty treats to help the victims of these horrific fires.
