On Thursday just a few of my little helpers were here so I decided it would be a great day to bake cookies. The kids just love baking. I like it too because it’s a great way to sneak on some practical learning. We count and take turns. I even let the kids that are two yet crack eggs. They love it and love it too.
For a long time I’ve been looking for a recipe that was a cookie that Grandma Kramer made. I think she called it a “church cookie”. It had rice krispies and oatmeal in them. While trolling on the computer I happen to come across a recipe that sounded similar. I tried to print the recipe but for some reason the recipe just wouldn’t print. I didn’t have time to play with the printer so I just grabbed a pen and paper and wrote the recipe down. Then the kiddos and I started baking.
As we were making them I got really excited. I thought I could make them gluten free so Kelli could eat them.
We got all the ingredients in and mixed and I put the first batch out on the pan….I was so hopeful that these were the cookies Grandma made AND that Kelli would be able to eat them too….
WRONG!! I opened the oven door to peak at the cookies and found this…
The cookies had melted across the pan and were dripping into the bottom of the stove.
WHAT!?!! How could this be???
Then I went back to the computer, found the recipe again and realized I had forgotten to write flour down when I wrote out the recipe.
I took the remaining dough, put it back on the mixer and added flour. I tried the cookies in the oven again and…
The cookies are yummy and very delicious. These might not be Grandma Kramer’s exact recipe but they sure do remind me of her cookies. I’ll be making them again for sure only I’ll skip the whole part about omitting the flour and running the dough all over the bottom of the oven. That part wasn’t fun.
Sadly they aren’t gluten free though….
The kids absolutely loved them….their chocolaty dirty faces and the fact that they asked for seconds is proof! If you want the recipe follow this link.
