A quick post today. Met yesterday afternoon in a Spiritual Direction Peer Support Group. A very good friend is training for Spiritual Direction. Needs a PSG. So we meet monthly and bat around our experiences and feelings.
COOKIES are present. Yesterday she brought oatmeal cookies...when I said, "Oh these ARE good" she rolled her eyes and said, "WELL...you know the recipe!!!"
Originally from the American Mental Health Association, the (in)famous
In a very large bowl (a big salad bowl, or even preserving kettle), place
3 cups butter or margarine (1.5 lb.), room temperature preferably
3 cups sugar (the browner the better)
3 cups flour (any kind although rye probably isn't a good idea)
6 cups rolled oats (any type)
1 Tbsp. baking soda (I have forgotten this entirely and can't tell the difference).
Wash your hands thoroughly; and then mix with both hands until the mixture is homogeneous (sp?)
Roll in small balls (pingpong sized) and flatten with a moistened fork.
Bake at 350 for 11-12 minutes until nice and brown.
If you're careful you can get 14 dozen out of this recipe. Very helpful in a house containing adolescent males.
They keep well, if stored in rusty old tins labelled "RAT POISON."
that is all.
