oatmeal scotchie win

This will be a short post since I'm sleepy and a little under the weather.

I'd been meaning for sometime to make oatmeal scotchie cookies from Toll House. Mostly to use up my butterscotch chips from my seven layer bars. Pretty much, when I put them in the oven to bake, they just melted. It was so sad.

I used whole wheat pastry flour since I was actually almost out of all purpose flour, but I though pastry flour was supposed to have more stick-togetherness? Whatever, either way, they melted and failed and all I did was take a really long time and a lot of effort to make my apartment smell really good.

I hate when things fail, plus I really wanted to make oatmeal cookies for Dave, but I was mad at Toll House at this point. So I found a new recipe in a book of my grandmothers and decided to go that route. It called for quick-cooking rolled oats, any my first recipe called for old-fashioned oats...hmmm... Clearly, the internet is useless because I spent about 30 min trying to find out the difference, if I could substitute, etc., and I found no satisfactory answer. So back to the store I went...

Finally oatmeal scotchie success!

Chewy oatmeal scotchie!

I have a cupcake story that will make you cry, but that's for another post!
