Vanishing Oatmeal Raisins CookiesApril 30, 2008
Who would have expected such quality cookies from a recipe off a lid? I certainly wouldn’t till I overcome my “fear” and decided to try. 1st saw this at <Blonde Ambition in the Kitchen> pictures of her yummy cookies attracted me, so I bookmark them and had them on my to-do list, since my kitchen is always stocked with quaker oat =X I must say, this is by far the best oatmeal cookies I made *grin* I like my cookies crispy and crunchy instead of soft and chewy. I added a few more baking minutes, and they turn out crispy, light :P lesson learnt? It is worth to give recipes on the lid a try! The following recipe is from <Quaker’s Oat> … Did these sometime back, with Quality Assurance(QA) procedure outsourced to several QA personnels :P Reviews was great~ Made them into mini bites size… 1 teaspoon amount, good and cute things comes in small sizes yea? :P (But sadly, when one overdose on these, small and cute waistline will all be just a dream >.< ) Enjoy!

I reduced the sugar as usual, used around 150g of brown sugar instead of a combination of brown and granulated sugar. Love the cookies! But the next time, I will increase the cinnamon to 2 teaspoon as I would prefer a stronger cinnamon taste. :P
