The high outside today will be 11.
But, my oven is set to 350 and I’m baking my traditional “Thanksgiving” cookies.
Oatmeal Cranberry White Chocolate Chunk Cookies
1 cup butter (softened)
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups oats
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 cups dried cranberries (Craisins)
1 cup white chocolate chunks (chips)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat together butter, sugar and eggs. Add in dry mixture of oats, flour, salt and baking soda. Stir in cranberries and chocolate.
Bake for 10-12 minutes.
At some point in your preparations, stop and watch this video and let it remind you of all that is very familiar around you — all that you can choose to see “with new eyes” this holiday season.
See if it doesn’t fill you with appreciation for scrapbooking that *I believe* can help us see things again and again as if for the first time. Scrapbooking can teach us to have a greater degree of daily gratitude and that is incredibly cool.
