It started with what I call Breakfast Cookies... because, hey. There's oatmeal in them.
Then I moved on to Scotcharoos... because I wanted them.
And then there was Fruit Pizza... which is also good for breakfast.
So really I just prepped some breakfast for the upcoming week.
Why the frenzy? To celebrate!
Our neighborhood just grew by 5 pounds 6 ounces.
Five pounds of straight up handsomeness... and the rest mostly sleepiness. Little stinker has not opened his eyes for me once yet! But he is dang cuddly. It's so fun to have a baby I can snuggle. The patients at work hog their babies. Big time. Rude.
And of course I shared some with this little miss too.
Just look at her. She needs a cookie.
Breakfast Cookies (aka Monster Cookies)
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 teaspoon corn syrup
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1 and 1/4 cup peanut butter
2 teaspoons baking soda
4 and 1/2 cups oatmeal
6 ounces chocolate chips
6 ounces M&M's
Combine all in order of ingredients. Depending on the dough sometimes I add a splash of water if it's too dry, and sometimes a splash of flour if it's too sticky. Drop by spoonful onto cookie sheet. Bake 350 degrees for 11 minutes. Makes 3 - 4 dozen.
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup margarine
1 and 1/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup cool whip (half of a container)
Fruit! strawberry, kiwi, blackberry, blueberry, grapes
Combine 4 ounces of cream cheese and margarine, mixing until blended. Add flour and salt. Mix well. Form into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap and chill 20 minutes or more.
On floured surface roll to 14 inch circle and place on pizza pan. Good luck with that. Dough and I don't get along very well, so I just get it flattened out somehow then put it on my pizza stone.
Prick bottom of dough with fork. Bake 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Cool.
Whip remaining cream cheese and sugar. Fold in cool whip. Spread on crust. Top with fruit. Chill.
