Let me tell you - these cookies are delicious! They came out beautifully, baking only about 11 minutes to perfection. The lucky hubby had two fresh from the oven while the rest cooled.All in all, a very delicious evening. The best part? Bringing a container of them to enjoy at work...

the goose loves oatmeal cookies
Last night, I decided to channel my inner-martha-stewart and whip up some delicious cookies for the hubby (and for myself, of course). So during work (shh!), I found a recipe on http://www.allrecipes.com/ (excellent site) called "Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies". The "spicy" part sounds like a turn-off at first, but it's really just adding cinnamon and cloves to a regular oatmeal cookie dough, so no problem. Also, why add raisins when you can add chocolate and butterscotch chips instead?? So, while our dinner was baking (polenta lasagna!) I threw together the batter with the help of my sturdy friend, the Kitchenaid Mixer. By this time, our dinner was ready so I put the cookie dough aside in the refridgerator. After eating dinner (which included watching an episode of "How I Met Your Mother" and playing with Bentley), I pulled the dough out and started baking.
