This has been a weird week around the ol’ stump ranch. The Cowboy has been working night shift, so the Bag Lady has been tiptoeing around the house trying to keep quiet while he sleeps. She almost forgot to bake cookies for his lunch yesterday, and was a little pressed for time. So rather than actually bake cookies from a recipe, she just grabbed a few things out of the pantry and whipped them together. She warned the Cowboy before he left that they might not be all that good.
Well, he called her a couple hours later (bless him; HIS cell phone is EASY to use!) and told her the cookies were ‘awesome’. Now if only she had measured and recorded what she did…
Actually, here is the recipe for anyone brave enough to give it a try:
Scratch-nut Creek Special Sandies
¾ C butter (approximately)
½ C golden brown sugar
½ C white flour
½ C whole wheat flour
1 ½ tsp vanilla
Cream butter and sugar, add remaining ingredients. Roll into balls, flatten on cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for approx. 12 – 15 minutes. Allow to cool. Spread one cookie with chocolate frosting, (or jam) and make a sandwich with a second cookie.
The Bag Lady used chocolate frosting because she had some available. She apologizes to all the dieters out there… It doesn’t make very many, if that’s any consolation!
Have a great weekend, all!
