this are based on Little Debbie Oatmeal Pie cookies that Sam just loves.
1 large egg white
s¼ cup sugar
¾ cup brown sugar
½ cup butter
¼ tsp cloves
½ tsp ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp baking soda
1 ½ cup quick oats
¾ cup whole wheat pastry flour
Preheat over to 350
Mix together the dry ingredients
Beat butter in the mixer
Add egg white to the butter
Add dry ingredients
Bake for 11-14 minutes
try and make them the same size.
1 cup of powdered sugar, 2 T butter, a little bit of marshmallow creme, a little bit of milk. i actually put all of this in my little food processor to get a thicker paste.
these cookies really are awesome. hopefully i will have some more interesting posts- meaning posts not only about food. however, right now, food is all i have on my mind.

perhaps some day it could be a business. but i doubt it. anything that these last few months have taught me is that doing things i love in an attempt to earn money hasn't really worked for my moral. maybe someday.
my life if full of maybes.
anyways, i am breaking my blogging silence to say i am tentatively home and back. Christmas is over (so relieved am i) and just yesterday i actually finished 3 little girl dresses for a shower gift. my friend is having another little girl and she loves to dress the girls alike, so i made 3 identical dresses set to wear in a year from now. it was immensely fun and rewarding to get back on my sewing machine and made me realize that i cannot remember the last time i made something for myself, and how it might be even more fun to do that.
i didn't take any pictures of the dresses mainly because i was literally trimming thread as i dropped them into the gift box. and i realized with all the pictures of things i have made and haven't shared clogging my picture albums, well, i didn't want to add one more thing.
january, how are you here already. and how is it 11 months till Christmas.
oh yes, i just said that. because really my only new years resolution is to not get into the same mess i did this last Christmas.
what a nightmare.
anyways, i am back. with tons of excitement. my sister got me martha's cookie book for christmas (and a weight watcher's cookbook, but i think posts on cookies will be way more entertaining) and after Sam and i get through our month long ban on cookie making, maybe i will bake a new cookie every week? maybe.
i also have 4 new sewing books to keep me busy. jess, my sister-in-law, got me this and this, and i got myself this one and that.
so i am back. maybe not super consistent. but back. i might forget any old label of past and start brand new, who knows (not me if you were wondering)
what else, what else.
oh yes. i am pregnant. thought i'd just throw that in, for anyone not really reading.
yup. january is here.
