Cookies for the car

It’s time.

The car is packed with food for six people for six days. We’ve waxed our skis. We dug out our cow bells, for cheering on the favorites.

We’re heading north to watch the World Cup.

Yes. Vacation.

I made cookie dough last night, and scooped it out into neat little balls to freeze and bring to our condo. But this morning, between last-minute edits, I couldn’t help but pop a few in the oven.

They’re gorgeous, really a mix between an oatmeal cookie and a 70% chocolate bar. The recipe is nothing special – just the old stand-by from the top of the Quaker Oats box, with 1/2 cup whole wheat flour and 1/4 cup flaxseed meal subbed in for 1/2 cup of the regular flour. No raisins. And oh, a full 12 ounces of chopped good chocolate.

My intention was to share the eight I’ve baked already with the rest of the caravan. I think I’ll call to apologize in advance.

    Hey Jess,

    We are up north too! Enjoy the skiing! Maybe we’ll see you around the village.

    Did Bromley get a cookie?

  4. No, poor dog. None for her.

  5. Thats a good idea to bring cookies to bake when you get there. There is nothing like freshly baked cookies!
