I'm in a cooking/baking mood and when the weather cools off I wanna eat! I came up with this awful concoction the other day that I'm hoping will help my booty get right since I lost most of it when I had Nia ;-)
Uka calls it the Abe Lincoln (why? I don't know).
It's an oatmeal cookie/dulce de leche ice cream sandwich. I used the oatmeal cookie recipe from the Quaker Oats lid - it's my favorite! I leave out the raisins though (Love Birds don't like them):
Quaker Vanishing Oatmeal Cookies
1/2 lb unsalted butter, softened
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
3 cups Quaker Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
1 cup raisins
Heat oven to 350 F. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugars until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well. Add oats and raisins; mix well.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake 10-12 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire rack. Cool completely. Store tightly covered.
*The official recipe says it makes 4dz but it's more like 3!
