The musical was cute. A few bawdy parts. My MIL certainly would not have enjoyed it. But it was still fun.
Even better, however, was dinner afterwards. E's husband made a delicious crawfish dish. I'm hoping he will be a sweetie and share the recipe. There was an enormous salad and tomatoes caprese. I brought dessert - Pioneer Woman's Pots de Creme and cookies.
Giada's Favorite Cookie
1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
2 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 oz Skor bar, finely chopped (they didn't have these at the store, but did have Heath Bar Toffee Brickle chips - they worked well as a substitute)
1 cup toasted hazelnuts
12 oz semi sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325° F.
Chop oats finely in a food processor. Mix with flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
With an electric mixer, beat butter and sugars until fluffy.
Add eggs and vanilla.
Add oat flour mixture and stir just until blended.
Stir in toffee, nuts, and chocolate chips.
Do you have one of these handy dandy kitchen scoops? Mine is from Pampered Chef and this is the smallest one.
It is perfect for cookies.
Never, ever eat raw cookie dough. It contains raw eggs and you might die.
Me? I like to live dangerously.
Where are the pictures of the baked cookies? Hmmm.....good question! They went too fast for a picture!
