Last night I was home alone and decided to bake something. It had just started raining outside and I figured it would be nice for my family to come home to a house that smelled like freshly baked cookies. The only problem was, I didn’t know what to make. I pulled out what we had in our pantry and decided to make a cookie out of anything I could find in our pantry. We ran out of granulated sugar (gasp!) so I had to use Splenda and we only had self-raising flour so I had to use that instead of all-purpose. I decided that I had to document this baking experiment, so I whipped out my camera and snapped a ton of photos while I was baking and made a video out of all my still shots. I don’t have a video camera yet, and my editing software isn’t the best, but it got the job done. Here’s the video: http://vimeo.com/24397671
So what happens when you put together Goldfish Cinnamon Grahams, White Chocolate Chips, Coconut, and Mini Oreos? Oatmeal Cinnamon White Chocolate Coconut Cookies with Mini Oreos. Ridiculous name. Absolutely delicious cookie
