Make that a warm milk. Or not. The notion of drinking warm milk is unappealing to me. Cold milk in a Mickey Mouse-style footed cup might be good though :) It's 2:00 a.m. and I am wide awake, perched on the edge of a new work week and unable to get any rest after a week of vacation. Go figure. On the bright side, I can get this post out of the way and kick-start my week!

Choc-Oat-Chip Cookies A combo of this and this, and then some!
  • 2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 pkg. (4-serving size) instant vanilla pudding
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 1-3/4 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 Tbl. vanilla extract
  • 12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2-1/2 cups oatmeal (I used quick oats)
Preheat oven to 375°F. Combine flour, pudding powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl and stir to evenly distribute ingredients. In a separate bowl, cream the butter and both sugars together until fluffy. Blend in applesauce. Add eggs, one a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in vanilla. Slowly incorporate flour mixture into creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and oats by hand. Drop by tablespoons (I used a medium-sized cookie scoop) onto ungreased (I line mine with parchment or foil, just in case!) baking sheets and bake at 375°F for 9-11 minutes. Yields 6 dozen.
