Wine and Dine Your Valentine
For your sweetie's sweet Tooth...
Delivery of a Dozen Long-stemmed Cookies
DELICIOUS CHOCOLATE OATMEAL COOKIES
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs, beaten well
1 tsp. vanilla
1 ½ cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
3 cups oatmeal
1 ½ cups of chocolate chips,
3/4 cup raisins, nuts or Craisins
Cream butter and sugar and mix well. Add eggs and vanilla, blend well. Blend in all of the dry ingredients and mix well. Lay out a piece of plastic wrap and use it to help shape the cookie mix into a log. Chill the cookie dough until firm.
Slice the dough into ¼ inch rounds and baked on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes.
While cookies are baking snip the blossom end off of 12 plastic or silk long-stemmed artificial flowers. When cookies are done and stll warm, quickly and carefully transfer them to a cooling rack. Carfully insert the tip of the stem well into each cookie and allow to cool. Carefully arrange your long-stemmed cookies in a flower delivery box, wrapped in colorful tissue, tie with a ribbon and let Cupid take it from there!
