The Great Cookie Extravaganza

Last Monday I had the day off so I decided to make a ton of cookies. Because I felt like it. Cookies aren't usually my favorite thing to bake but I thoroughly enjoyed them. None of the recipes are mine but I've made them all previously and they're pretty delish.

The original inspiration for cookie day was these molasses spice cookies...they taste like fall!

Ready to go into the oven

They smell divine

I actually take half of the dough of these Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies and put raisins in them to make a half batch of Oatmeal Raisin cookies and half of Oatmeal Chocolate Chip to add some variety. I also add about 2 teaspoons of cinnamon to add extra flavor.

My final variety for the day was a classic Chocolate Chip. I made these extra chocolatey by using 3 cups of chocolate chips rather than 2. I was pleased with the way they turned out.


All 4 varieties bagged up, labeled and ready to go to my company softball game
