I love baking and I think it’s an exotic art. I still remember the first time I tried baking a cake with store-bought mix that turned out to be a disaster.But I never gave up and tried my hands on this art slowly and progressively. It’s really wonderful to see your gooey-doughey stuff placed in the oven turns into something  incredibly delicious! Once you get hold of this art, it’s an addiction that’s hard to get rid of.There are days when I will bake two to three days in a row. Having a passion for baking can sometimes be tricky when there is only two of us eating my baked goodies.

The other day I was in a mood to bake some cookies. Cookies are very simple and easy to make and there is endless combination you can do with a cookies. I love oatmeal cookies and peanut butter cookies, so I have decided to combine these two with some chocolate chips and cranberries. And I’m glad I did, because these cookies were totally irresistible. And the texture on these cookies are magical! Soft and tender inside and outside, with just a bit of texture from the oats, and packed with peanut butter and chocolate-cranberry flavor. Ahh!! total Bliss!! These cookies are easy to put together and in less than an hour, you’ll have a batch of fresh and irresistible cookies. As you can see these are big monster cookies. I’m saying just one will fill you up. You could push for two, but one was really plenty for me.

    Absolutely gorgeous looking cookies! Am sure they taste even better than they look 🙂 Do they stay crisp for a day or two? I have problems earlier with cookies that go soggy even when stored in an air tight container 😦

    • incidentalcooksuman says:

      These are soft and tender cookies and they stay fresh for a week or longer in a tightly covered container. The only trick is not to over bake the cookies.Be sure to pull them out when the cookie rim are just set and lightly brown, even if the centers look soft and tender. They will continue cooking on the baking sheets and when cool, will be perfect. Hope that helps! Thanks!
