cranberry oatmeal cookies

Saturday, December 03, 2011

Yesterday I came home from work to make bread with my bread machine. (I make a lot of bread & give it out to the widows and pastors at our church so it's about 10 loaves so each week I do 2 loaves to hand out Sunday morning). I was also wanting to make cranberry, white chocolate chip oatmeal cookies for the Ladies tea (church) that I will be going to later today and supper.
Well, I made the cookies WIThOUT the chocolate chips. I figure no one will know but the chef and my family. So I hope to give some out, my family knows as it is one of their favorite cookies! Go figure, I got a laugh of my mistake and I hope you did too.
Thank you for reading this and have a wonderful Sat!!

    I have to add my best blunder of all: I made a Wacky Cake (that is the actual name) for a friend's son and he needed a hack saw to cut into it. It is still laughed about calling it "THE CAKE" . emoticon

    I had not read this blog before. That is just too funny. I have done those kind of things myself. My sister made chicken noodle soup and forgot to put in the chicken. go figure.

    I'm sure they're quite yummy without the chips! I imagine that most of your Spark friends have done something similar - and with not-as-happy results (let me tell you about my chocolate cake that tasted like a cracker!)

    Praying for your DD...Have a good week!

    I think they'll be just as tasty, and maybe just be a variety of cookie that is different from the others! I doubt anyone will miss the chips! emoticon

    I praise you for all the baking you do for others especially the bread for the elderly and widows. I am sure you are blessed in more way than one for your sharing of the talent you have to cook and bake. emoticon

    That's one of those "happy accidents" I've heard of on Bob Ross' painting instructional shows! Anyway, that's how life is. I agree with Helen in that at least they will be lower in calories and I can imagine they will taste great even without the chocolate chips! Hugs, Shirley

    I am sure those cookies were delicious and WAY TO GO on leaving out the extra calories the chocolate chips would have added. So glad you can laugh at yourself...it's a shame that more people can't do that. AWESOME on making and giving away the homemade bread. YUMMY!! Have a wonderful Sunday!
    Blessings and hugs,

    Very generous of you to make homemade bread for giving to families in need. I enjoy making my own bread because I know what went in to make it. I use sprouted flour, which makes the nutrients in bread more readily available.

    Funny! Gotta tell ya, I made Snickerdoodles the other day. It was one of those Betty Crocker mixes and I thought the batter seemed awfully dry. After I got the dough all rolled into balls and most of the cookies baked, I reread the package and figured out I left out the water it called for...lol

    Bet your cookies are still delicious and will be appreciated by the ladies at the tea.
