we need cookies

(I'm changing this post to take out "field-trip friday," we went on a field-trip :D)

For our "field trip friday" we took a trip to the kitchen. Too much of a stretch? Maybe.

But I have a toddler...

And a newborn.

So the kitchen is about as far as we've got today. 

Of course for me, venturing into the kitchen can seem like a big trip. 
And making cookies - or any food for that matter - from scratch is especially out of the ordinary. 
For me at least... Cooking from scratch is not easy. 
Unless of course you happen to have (as I do) the world's best cookie recipe. 

And Millie and I decided that we needed cookies. It's just a cookie kind of day.

Not only were we making an especially delicious and uncannily easy recipe, but WE were cooking. 
"We," as in, Millie and mama. Together in the kitchen. 
Millie's first batch of cookies. 

Do I have to tell you that she LOVED it?

Especially the pouring. With few exceptions, I let her add all the ingredients. 
And she even got to sample the butterscotch chips!

From start to finish:

She couldn't believe her good fortune. 
She ate her lunch as the cookies baked, and by the time she had finished her lunch, 
the first sheet of cookies was cooled and just asking to be eaten. 
So we did just that. 


We need cookies:
1 1/2 c. brown sugar
3/4 c. butter
1/2 c. milk
2 t. vanilla
1 3/4 c. flour
2 1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1 1/2 c. oatmeal
1 bag chocolate/butterscotch/carmel/etc. chips

Preheat oven to 350
Cream sugar and butter
Add vanilla and milk
Mix

In another bowl - mix flour, baking powder and salt.
Blend with butter mix.
Stir in oatmeal and chips.

Place on cookie sheet (I like to use parchment paper)
Bake for 9-10 minutes
Be exact if you like soft cookies

Enjoy!
