Warrior Herb Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies #SipbySip #Sponsored

Recently I posted photos of my oatmeal raisin cookies and received all sorts of comments from friends and family. And those helped me create this recipe. First, a friend mentioned that she added tea to her oatmeal raisin cookies. Second, several friends engaged in some raisin-shaming, suggesting that chocolate chips were a better addition to oatmeal cookies than dried up grapes. Okay. Fine. I'm on board with chocolate chip cookies anytime!


I circled back to my friend who mentioned the teas and she said she adds the contents for a few tea bags. I just happened to have received a care package from The Republic of Tea* and read the labels to see which might be a nice flavor complement to oatmeal-chocolate chip cookies. You'll see other other two teas in different creations, but for these, I went with the new Star Wars: The Mandalorian - Warrior Herb Tea.

It's a caffeine-free herbal blend of rooibos, natural passion fruit flavor, hibiscus, natural mango and vanilla flavors, peony petals, sunflower petals, natural strawberry, and grapefruit flavors. And it smells delicious. Feel free to substitute whatever tea you have on-hand.

Ingredients makes approximately three dozen 2" cookies

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup organic dark brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1/2 cup organic granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups flour
  • contents of 4 tea bags (approximately 4 teaspoons)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1-1/2 cups chocolate chips
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • Also needed: baking sheets, parchment paper, cookie scoop (optional) 


Procedure
 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugars. Once that mixture if lightened and fluffy, beat in the eggs one at a time until fully combined. Beat in the vanilla.

In a medium mixing bowl, blend together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and tea. Stir the dry ingredients into the butter-sugar mixture. Stir in the oats. Fold in the chocolate chips.

 

Scoop out the dough by large tablespoonfuls - I use a cookie scoop - onto prepared cookie sheets, leaving at least 2 inches between each cookie. These flatten out and spread as they bake.

 

Place trays in the oven and bake until the edges of the cookies turn golden brown, approximately 16 to 18  minutes. 

Let the cookies cool for 3 to 4 minutes on the sheets. Then carefully transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely. Store tightly covered.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
