Isaac Cookies

ISAAC COOKIES — or at least that it what I’m calling them from now on in honor of this never ending tropical storm/hurricane that has some cabin fever kids under my roof while I attempt to work grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr


1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 large egg plus one egg yolk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon

baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats (not instant)

3/4 cup dried cranberries

6 ounces white chocolate chips


1 Preheat oven to 355°F. Soak cranberries in warm water while you complete next steps – just drain when ready to use

2 In a large bowl using an electric mixer combine the sugar, brown sugar and butter; mix well to cream together.

3 Add in egg and vanilla extract and mix until combined.

4 Add the cinnamon, baking soda, salt and flour and mix well.

5 Fold in the oatmeal, dried cranberries and white chocolate chips- making sure that all ingredients are uniformly distributed.

6 Roll dough into 1-inch balls and place 3 inches apart onto a greased cookie sheet and bake at 350° for 11 minutes, just until the edges are lightly golden.

7 Remove from oven and let cool for 2-3 minutes on the cookie sheet, then transfer cookies to cooling rack.


Bring it, Isaac. Bring it.

But first… we stopped by Page and Palette for Cones of Uncertainty for 25 cents. Still laughing about that one.

We took a quick trip down to the Bay. Lovely color tongue there, Thomas.





Tori is off at a Hurricane Lock-in Party with friends

And we’re watching this storm warily…


Amazing sunset to end the day though!



Everyone stay safe out there in the path of this VERY annoying storm.
