Oatmeal-Raisin Cookie Blondies

So there’s this new butcher shop in town that Jon and I have visited each weekend for the last two weeks. They have homemade cookies individually wrapped and for sale at the cash register. They looked so good, and I couldn’t resist picking up a cookie for each of us. I chose their oatmeal raisin cookies. Let me tell you, they were some of the best oatmeal raisin cookies I’ve ever had.

While we were driving home, I told Jon I wanted to try to make my own version of the cookies. We dropped off our bacon and ground chuck that we had just bought at the house and we went on to the grocery store to pick up cookie baking supplies.

I got the cookie dough mixed and scooped out onto baking sheets. I put them in the oven, and when I check on them, the cookie dough had ran together and didn’t rise. They weren’t cooked all the way through yet. DISASTER! I was pretty disappointed, because (even though you’re not supposed to eat raw cookie dough, I tried a little taste of it) the cookie dough tasted so good. I took a spatula and scraped the “cookies” into a pile on the baking sheet. I tried a little taste, and the cookie pile was DELICIOUS! These might be able to be SAVED!

I formed the cookie pile into a square and returned it to the oven to finish baking. Once it was done, I let it sit out to cool. Once the square cookie pile was cooled, I used a cookie cutter to cut out circles to make cookies! SUCCESS!

Jon and I couldn’t stay out of our oatmeal raisin “cookies“. They were so good I had to make them again (with some tweaking) so I could share the recipe with everyone! My mother-in-law will be especially happy, because I know she is reading this and will be excited that I will be seeing her this weekend. As a thank you for allowing me to switch cars with her for the big parking lot yard sale, I’ll be bringing her some of these fabulous Oatmeal-Raisin Cookie Blondies… Right about now, I bet she’s saying, “Yes! Cookies!”. Haha, makes me laugh.

But in all seriousness, I’m so glad I was able to turn what I thought what was a cooking disaster into a cooking win!
