Sunday we went to Ardenwood Farm for their Fall Festival. They had food there (the most pathetic tri-tip sandwich ever, barely any meat and flavorless) and a bunch of demonstrations, including baking demonstrations of food cooked the old fashioned way in an old stover. One of the things they made were these amazing crispy cookies. Their program came with a recipe for “Oatmeal Crispies”, and while these cookies (recipe below) were also very good, they weren’t as good or as sweet as those I tried at the festival. Still, they are worth making.

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups white flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3 cups oatmeal
  • 1 package chocolate chips

      Cream together the butter and the sugars. Mix in the eggs and then vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking soda, salt, oatmeal and chocolate chips. Bake at 350F for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and cool.
