Two Tip Tuesday – Quilting and Cookies

I have been posting about the Designers Quilt Show that is happening on the website of the same name. Tomorrow (OOPS, I’m late….today is Wednesday in MA!) is Day 3 and my site will be highlighted along with 4 other designers. Have you been following each day? It is fun to see what other designers are creating! On day 6 there will be a recap of all the designers. Be sure you check out the prizes page. Wonderful goodies to be won by some of YOU!

Speaking of goodies…the first day of the “show” had a recipe for the best oatmeal cookies, EVER! This is the recipe I used in my Home Ec teaching days. One of the first times the kids got to turn on the oven and cook during class. Credit for this recipe goes to my colleague Oletta Miller. We taught side by side for 7 years! I will include the recipe below for her Crispy Oatmeal Cookies that are amazing! What with all the stay at home time, I thought it might be fun to share one of my favorite recipes. This would be a GREAT time to teach kids how to cook and SEW! Start them young and teach them life skills!!

The Crispy Oatmeal Cookies recipe will be below.  Did you notice anything else on the photo?  How cool when I realized my flash made a heart shape shadow on the milk in the glass!

#1 – Teach the next generation how to sew and cook!  This oatmeal cookie recipes, besides being the best EVER is a great place to start.  The mug rug would also be a good sewing project.  The mug rug can be found in my new Hexie Fun Placemats and Mug Rug Pattern.

Crispy Oatmeal Cookies

¾ cup sifted all-purpose flour

1 ½ cups quick oats

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon baking soda

½ cup unsalted butter, room temperature

½ cup brown sugar, packed

½ cup sugar

1 egg

½ teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350°F.  In a large mixing bowl cream butter and sugars with an electric mixer.  Add egg and vanilla.  Cream together.  In a separate bowl put sifted flour, oats, salt and baking soda, mix well.  Add dry ingredients to the creamed butter mixture, mixing with a spoon.  On a lightly greased cookie sheet, drop cookie batter (by tablespoon) on sheet 2 inches apart.  Bake 9-10 minutes or until golden brown.  Remove from pan and place cookies on wax paper to cool.  Makes 3 dozen.  Store in airtight container.
