One of my favorite treats to go with tea is this Applesauce Oatmeal Cookie. I have posted this recipe before but thought I would do all my new followers a favor. You must try this cookie if you like a spicy, soft type with nut-crunch taste. Try to eat just one :).
1 3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp powdered cloves
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup walnuts (or raisons)
Measure together first 5 ingredients. In another bowl, mix together butter, sugar and egg.
In another bowl, combine sauce and soda.
Blend into creamed mixture alternating with dry mixture. Fold in oats and nuts or raisons.
Spoon onto cookie sheet (I use parchment paper) Bake 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
I think you will love these.
It was so nice to get out with the dog yesterday and have a long walk. It was the first day in a week that the temperature was above freezing and the sun shone in your face. Loved It. Kane loved it.
I have a busy week ahead with 'house stuff' and cat-sitting. Tuxedos and Tabbies will fill my week.
One of the sweetest, most shy little cats that I know and love is Lola.
Rosie is upstairs eating and 'vants to be alone' so I'll get her photo next time. Caring for them was a great way to start my day.
Yes, the sun is shining again and the winds have calmed. The ferals were given soft food with their kibble last night but not one showed up while I was there. I know tonight the food will have disappeared but who and what is eating it? Tracks of birds, rabbits, cats, skunks and so on will be there. It's winter and everything is hungry.
