Maple Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

A few weeks ago my boss walked into my office and said "hey want to go see the lion king? I've got 4 tickets and I can't go anymore" ummm YES!!! My coworker, her boyfriend, another friend and myself found ourselves sitting in the 5th row in total amazement just hours later. (John was invited but he politely declined wanting to go - silly man) It was memorizing, the choreography, the costumes! And grown up Simba was a hottie! (bonus points since he was shirtless the whole time)... what? is that wrong to say? Can't a girl appreciate some man meat? Have you ever been? You would have thought he was hot too.

Anyway.... to thank my boss I made him a batch of Maple Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. And they were amazing!! Crisp on the outside with a nice chew in the middle these things are not on the healthy list. No sir, these are on the butter and sugar list.

Remember how I went to Trout Brook Sugarhouse a few weeks ago for a 24x24? While there I picked up a bag of their pancake mix and a cookie recipe. (both created by the son of the owner). The cookies they had out to sample were delicious so I knew I wanted to buy some of the pancake mix so I could make them up too. (The raisin addition was all me... I know I'm just so inventive sometimes I can't help it...)

I'm dying to see that show! Love the cookies!

Glad you enjoyed them, Steph! Nice touch with the raisins. We actually call the mix Peter's Pancakes, named in memory of Peter J. Cannon.

I just always was so disappointed as a child when I joyfully bit into a cookie, expecting chocolate chip, only to be heartbroken at the realization that it was oatmeal raisin. I've just never been the same.

These do sound wonderful though... I love maple. Maybe I can put chocolate chips in it... hmm...

Hannah said...

Fantastic! Maple is always a top choice for hot oatmeal, so I know it would be perfect for sweetening up cookies. Sounds like a comforting treat!

Thanks! I just updated the recipe to the correct pancake name :) They were
delicious! Is there anyway for people to buy them online? If there is I'd be
happy to link to it!

HAHAHHAHA ahhh the hazards of being a kid and eating oatmeal raisin cookies
:) Love the story though, I was a weird kid because I always liked them! I'm
sure you could add chocolate chips and these would still be delicious :)

The addition of maple sounds wonderful! I have a huge jub of maple syrup in my fridge...these cookies need to be made!

Interesting; I've never made cookies with pancake mix before - why not? Plus the maple syrup just perfects them...they sound delicious!
