The storm is certainly a big focus here in Israel this week! Today it made all traffic stop in Tel Aviv, even the trains, because of severe flooding. And it seems in a day or two the snow will stop everything in Jerusalem. So, – I am stocking up on all essentials! (Read: plenty of tea and honey, lots of milk and chocolate, cream to go in the hot chocolate etc.)
The wind, hail and rain hitting the windows makes one just want to curl up under a blanket with a hot drink and a plate of cookies, doesn’t it? So, – I thought I would share with you a healthy (*well, relatively…) cookie-recipe today.
300 grams butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
a generous amount of cinnamon
4 1/2 cups big oats
raisins, definitely pecans, maybe apricots or whatever dried fruits or nuts you like
It’s all quite simple. You cream the butter and the sugars well together, preferably until fluffy. You add the eggs and the vanilla, and fold in the dry ingredients. Make small ball-shaped cookies. (This recipe makes about sixty.) Bake at 175 degrees Celsius for about 16 minutes.
And then you take a jar of them to a neighbor who invites you over for coffee! 🙂
