Wait, what? You made cookies and not a cookietini? Calm down, Karen.

Your cocktail, INSPIRED BY OATMEAL COOKIES, is coming at the end of this post.

Before half of you get hostile about the raisins, Martha gave me permission to substitute.

She said I could substitute with other dried fruits, not chocolate, but these are quarantine times and I’m gonna lie to myself and say I trust my judgment. We’ll see!

Step 2: Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon

EASY.

Step 3: beat butter and both sugars

This doesn’t look like they’re going to be that big.

Step 4: Add eggs, one at a time

Step 5: Add vanilla

Um, no. There is no 3/4 measuring cup and I am not about to guess. It says it makes 8 cookies, so why not make a loaf and cut it into 8?
