After a long day at the office, there’s no better comfort than the simple sweetness of an Oatmeal Raisin cookie. Kick off your shoes, loosen that tie, and fall into your favorite spot on the couch. Then reach for the perfect after-work pick-me-up: a chewy, fresh-baked cookie. Oatmeal and raisins come together to make the perfect guilt-free cookie that still satisfies your sweet tooth. You know there are sweeter options out there but you’re sensible when it comes to your snack choices. Our Oatmeal Raisin cookie is made with all-natural ingredients unlike all those prepackaged, hard-as-a-rock cookies you see at the grocery store. No, those name brand cookies don’t appeal to you. If you’re going to spring for something sweet, you don’t want any preservatives or processed gunk; you want something that’s hand-made with simple, clean ingredients. That something is the classic Oatmeal Raisin cookie.
Pi Day has arrived and we know the usual way to celebrate is with, well, pie obviously… While we do love some good ol’ fashioned pie we’re just a little jealous of all the attention it gets on this day.
Then we found it. The perfect recipe for saving our tumultuous relationship with that other circular dessert: Snickerdoodle Chess Pie.
This is not another one of those day-old-snickerdoodle-pie-crust recipes, either. This one actually turns Snickerdoodles into pie filling! Head on over to somethingswanky.com for the recipe and even more lovely photos of this perfect pie creation. You’ll need about a dozen cookies for the recipe, but don’t forget to pick up some extra Snickerdoodles so you have enough to snack on while baking 😉
