TWD: Chocolate Oatmeal Drops
Boy, talk about a sleeper.
These cookies did not look or sound very interesting. Actually, they looked like something had gone horribly wrong--a great heap of cookie with a thin, lacy band around it. hmm.
In a fit of TWD Remorse, I made these the same night I made the scones. The scones were old hat for me; I've been making that recipe for years. These were new. We got no pictures, so I couldn't tell much about them other than I had everything necessary on hand, and they sounded brownie-like in preparation.
First, there was melting of butter and sugar and chocolate.
That went fast.
Whisk, whisk in dry stuff and stir in oatmeal. I added some walnuts, too, just because.
Then I scooped onto pans by tablespoons as directed, and here is where things got weird:
They didn't seem to spread much.
I was afraid they would be raw in the middle, but they were not! They were actually chewy brownielicious goodness that I will most definitely make again. I wasn't expecting much but they very much exceeded expectations. Go 'head, then, Caroline and Claire! (They have the recipe up, if you are interested.)
