I just got back from a really fun trip to San Francisco, so of course I’m writing about banana-oatmeal-chocolate chip cookies. (That’s a joke…) But seriously, I read about these on Family Friends and Food a couple of weeks ago. I tried out the recipe and agreed with Patsyk that the baking time of 18 minutes was way too long. Then I was going to post a link to the recipe and tell you how I added lots more chocolate chips and some extra sugar and they turned out great, but the original recipe seems to have been taken down from the Cooking Light site. I wonder if they read some of the user comments about how the recipe didn’t really work as written and figured it had to be re-tested. Or maybe it’s just me? The recipe shows up on a search of the site — see here — but when I click through, I just get the “About Us” page. Hmmm. Anyway, these cookies were super soft and good while warm, but the weird thing is that they got even better the next day. They’re really cake-y though, so if you like chewy or crispy cookies, they might not be your thing.
P.S. Thanks for the birthday wishes, everybody, and here is a photo I took of those houses that they show at the start of the old show Full House. You know, that was when the Olsen twins were still little?
