I'm an artistic genius*

Make delicious, delicious oatmeal cookie batter, by substituting c. 3-1/2 cups of oatmeal for about 1 to 1-1/4 cups of flour in the Nestle Tollhouse Cookie recipe.

[Licks of this unbaked batter are maybe the most delicious, salty-stuff sweet in the world, but do y'all find cookie dough ice cream remotely successful at accessing that taste for our pleasure? Grainy lumps of tasteless sweet, they are.]

Flatten scoops of batter on a cookie sheet. Top with a square of Ghirardelli caramel milk chocolate, then, a slightly smaller round of dough that you flatten carefully over the top and seal up around the edges.

Cook the usual way, maybe until a little browner than usual, and let sit and cool very thoroughly, until these become stabilized cookie/candy situations, with a lovely striation of the Ghirardelli throughout.


*Not really. Movie quote. Just hyperbolating.

There's now way I can never make these ~ you had me at Ghirardelli ~ but just to keep from dying and whatnot from the whole diabetes nuisance, I guess i should wait till I have company coming to share them with.
