Giant Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

When you get a cookie craving mid week the only thing to do is make them giant. Who has time to rotate 2-3 dozen cookies through the oven? Not this girl! I made 8 big huge oatmeal cookies and was such a happy camper.

I love adding random mix-ins to my cookies. This original recipe doesn't have any nuts or treats added to it and its delicious but I had walnuts on hand so I tossed them in and oh my yum! Dig around and see what you have on hand to mix in!

Giant Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

1/2 Cup Butter Room Temperature
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup White Sugar
1 Egg
1 Tbsp. Molasses
3/4 Cup Flour
1 1/2 Cup Rolled Oats
1 Tsp Cinnamon
1/2 Tsp Baking Soda
1/2 Tsp Salt
2 Tsp Cornstarch

Preheat the oven to 350° and line 2 sheet trays with parchment paper. In a small bowl, combine flour, oats, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and cornstarch. Set aside.  In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, white sugar, egg and molasses. Stir until completely smooth. Add in the dry mixture and stir until evenly mixed. Portion cookie dough into 1/3 cup balls and roll in between palms to make round. It will make exactly 8 cookies. Gently press each ball down with the bottom of a glass to slightly flatten. Cook 4 on a tray, but only 1 tray at a time. Space evenly and bake for 15 minutes. Press down lightly on the cookies and bake for another 3-5 minutes. Let cool and store in an airtight container.

Skinny Lemon Margarita

Oh my margs! I have such a love/hate relationship with you. I absolutely love a good homemade marg but I cannot for the life of me order one at a restaurant with out completely micromanaging the bar tender. Like, I'm not trying to drink juice with a drop of tequila in it!

I have pretty much perfected the at home marg and love switching up the flavors from time to time. I am a huge lemon fan and these Skinny Lemon Margaritas really hit the spot on a warm day... well, any day really!

Skinny Lemon Margarita

1 1/2 Ounces Silver Tequila
3 Tablespoons Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
1 1/2 Tablespoons Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice
1 Teaspoon Light Agave Nectar
Kosher Salt for the Rim

Rim you glass with salt. Fill the glass with ice and set aside. Fill a cocktail shaker or mason jar with more ice and all other ingredients. Tightly close the shaker or jar and shake like crazy. Pour the cocktail into the glass and drink up!
