What We Ate: {Oatmeal Candy Cookies}

Mike found this recipe. He had to have it. I changed it up a bit by throwing in a couple of our favorite candy bars. Nothing is better than a delicious cookie and a delicious candy bar mixed together!

The Stuff:

1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup loosely packed brown sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup flour
3/4 cups oats
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 cup chunks of the the delicious candy bar of your choosing {we divided the dough in half and used two candy bars. its how we roll}
optional: 1- 2 tablespoons milk, if dough is crumbly

The Doing:

Heat butter in small pan over medium-low heat. Whisking constantly, cook butter until bubbly and browned – about 5-6 minutes. Watch closely and immediately remove the butter from the heat, whisking for an additional 30 seconds. Set aside and let cool completely, should not be warm to the touch.

In a bowl, combine flour, salt, baking powder, oats and cinnamon, mixing, then set aside.
Once butter has cooled, add to a large bowl. Stir in sugars. Add in egg and vanilla. Slowly begin to stir in dry ingredients. If dough won’t come together, add in milk 1 tablespoon at a time (I didn't have to do this.) Stir in candy chunks. Refrigerate dough for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Form dough into 1 1/2 inch balls and place on greased cookie sheet. Bake for 9 minutes. {Watch closely...the Mr. Goodbar cookies were perfect at 9 minutes but the Hershey's Special Dark cookies burned at 9 minutes.}
