April 30th is National Oatmeal Cookie Day
you're looking for something to do today then call your grandma because
it's National Oatmeal Cookie Day! She's makes them just how
like them, doesn't she? Let's get right into celebrating
Oatmeal Cookie Day!
WHY IS THIS A
Today is a holiday because almost all of us have had an
cookie at some point in our lives. Heck, your grandma might even have
her own special recipe and no bake cookies definitely still count as an
oatmeal cookie! See you're probably had one of them, haven't you? And
if you haven't had an oatmeal cookie in any form then today is a good
day to start! An oatmeal cookie is pretty much just a cookie
some oats in it. You add some quick rolled oats, like you'd use in
oatmeal, into your cookie batter after you've mixed everything else up.
add them in late so that your oats don't get all broken down; you want
them to retain their true form to give your cookie a really nice
texture. Then you just bake them like you would any other cookie.
But the cookie batter will sometimes have other ingredients
to give it more of a robust flavor. It's pretty common to have raisins
in oatmeal cookies for a different texture and a bit of sweetness. And
a lot of people will add things like cinnamon or cloves to give the
cookies a unique and old fashioned flavor. And that's just the basic
oatmeal cookie recipes; you're always welcome to try something like no
bake cookies too! Are you ready for a helping of oats?
So how can you celebrate today? Well, you can easily head on
down to your local grocery store and scan the shelves for some oatmeal
cookies. There will probably be a wide variety to choose from and you
can head to the bakery in the store to see if they have some fresh
ones. Buy one kind or a bunch to see who makes the best oatmeal
cookies. Or you could skip the grocery store and head to a local bakery
and get some freshly made oatmeal cookies from people who specialize in
Or you can invite some friends and family over to help
you bake up a bunch yourself at home. It doesn't take long at all, you
know everything that goes into your cookies and you get to eat them
when they are their freshest! And if you don't want to bake then you
can make no bake cookies, which are actually a bit better in my opinion
;). Those little chocolate blobs are sure to appeal to most
people. Have fun with it... try out a bunch of different
ingredients like nuts, dried fruit and different seasonings. See who
can come up with the most unique oatmeal cookie that actually still
tastes good. That's a competition that no one really loses though,
since you'll all be eating a bunch of cookies! Don't forget the milk
;). Enjoy your day and your oats!
