trailside oatmeal cookies


1/2 C butter, softened
1 C sugar
1 C b. sugar
1/2 C peanut butter
1 t b. soda
1/2 t salt
2 eggs
1/4 C milk
1 t vanilla
1 1/2 C flour
2 1/2 C oats
2 1/2 "fixings"
*suggested fixings are p. butter chips, chopped nuts, chocolate chips, raisins, coconut

beat butter, sugars, p. butter, b/ soda & salt until well combined. beat in eggs, milk & vanilla. beat in flour then oats. stir in "fixings"

drop by spoonfuls onto baking sheets. bake at 375 for 8-10 min. makes 60 cookies.

we used butterscotch chips, mini choco chips, coconut, raisens, and our peanut butter was chunky for the nuts. SOOO good! we also made a pan of cookie bars. i imagine any assortment that makes you think of trailmix would be good -seeds, m&m's, etc. this may need to be tweaked for african lifestyle, but i think we'll be making these for many years to come!
