Angels Oatmeal Cookies

Tuesday, July 24, 2007

Yesterday, I made Alton Brown’s Oatmeal Cookies from his book: I'm Just Here for More Food: food x mixing + heat = baking. I made 1/2 the batch because his original recipe calls for 5 sticks of butter! And even that is too much butter for me.

I made these for the Anaheim Angels (of ANAHEIM – no where near Los Angeles, Mr. Arte Moreno!) game. I took my dad to the first game of the Angels vs Oakland A’s series. It was a sell-out and we got smoked (12-6). I bought the tickets from the Angels Exchange (highly recommended for all events – you can purchase tickets held by season ticket holders and the service charges are, I believe, less than buying regular tickets) and we ended up in the Club section. The seats were pretty good and they had a waitress for the area! It is the area where the high-end corporate suites are located. Even the bathroom is nicer with some colorful mosaic tile. We stayed until the very last out…but most of the fans didn’t. Here is my view (with my sneakers) in the 8th inning. Okay, back to cooking…

I made half of them with raisin and half with dried cranberries. Did you know… when you bake the cranberries, they come out looking exactly look like raisins!? Anyway, people at work liked them and they were yummy during the 7th inning stretch.

By the way, I heard from Pam of "Pam Jam" fame. I bought her family a special canning funnel that I saw on a cooking show once. She used it for her most recent batch of Pam Jam and said it saved a bunch of time. If only they had it for the last 30 years of canning... :)

Pin It!
