~Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies~

I had promised my mother-in-law
 some baked cookies today.
 I used the Quaker Oats Oatmeal recipe.
Thought I'd show you my new Paris egg cup.
So cute, and no it's not hard boiled.
But you do need 1 egg for the recipe.
  • 1-1/4  cups (2-1/2 sticks) margarine or butter, softened
  • 3/4  cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2  cup granulated sugar
  • 1  egg
  • 1  teaspoon vanilla
  • 1-1/2  cups all-purpose flour
  • 1  teaspoon baking soda
  • 1  teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2  teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 1/4  teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3  cups Quaker® Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
  • I added some chopped chocolate & almonds (she likes them that way)


Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, beat margarine and sugars until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; beat well. Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg; mix well. Add oats; mix well.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake 8 to 9 minutes for a chewy cookie or 10 to 11 minutes for a crisp cookie. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire rack. Cool completely. Store tightly covered.

I added a little embellishment to the box.

Put the cookies on some pretty tissue and 
boxed them up.
Tied them with some string.
Nothing like fresh baked cookies!


  1. Now I would accept a gift of homemade cookies any day, but if they arrived looking as pretty as that I would probably faint!! I'm imagining too that any cookies with ingredients presented on a Paris egg cup and in that pretty mug would have to be over the top delicious. Beautiful!

  2. My husband would love these. He loves oatmeal and chocolate chip cookies. Great recipe and they look great.


  3. They look yummy and the decorated box is beautiful. wish you were my neighbour - I can almost imagine you at my door with these and the kettle is on!

  4. I can tell you like your new lens :)
    Looks great!
