Oatmeal Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

Do you ever have one of those days where you clock in at work at 8a, and all of a sudden it’s quitting time? Today was one of those days, and since quitting time didn’t come until 6p, it’s safe to say I was exhausted when I finally made it home.

It’s also safe to say that I was craving cookies something fierce.

These two events are pretty standard in my life. I’m still trying to figure out if they are related. In any case, my cookie craving is pretty celebrated around these parts, since it generally results in delicious (slightly burnt or undercooked) desserts for my friends and family.

Oatmeal Coconut Chocolate Chip CookiesThat’s where these babies come in. Slightly burnt around the edges, but that just adds even more character to the exciting blend of coconut flakes, mini chocolate chips, and chewy oatmeal. I swear one of these days I will figure out how to properly bake things in my uneven oven. …But wait! There’s more!

pumpkin. everything.

It’s autumn guys. Do you know what this means? It means PUMPKIN.

This weekend I took a trip up to the lovely little town of North Conway, NH. Of course it was grey and raining and cold and I had wet toes and frizzy hair and there was not a hint of crisp autumn air for miles. But I still could not get pumpkin things out of my head. I had a can waiting for me at home and I was going to bake the crap out of that baby!

Despite the rain, it was a successful weekend away from the generally boring tasks that are my weekends at home. Especially rewarding was the trip to Zeb’s General Store where I picked up these little guys: Smores on a StixS’mores on a Stix from RHD Candy, based in Lancaster, NH; and Annie B’s Caramels, in Pumpkin and Amaretto.

Annie B's Carame;s Seriously. So, so good. They’ve just further fueled by obsession with all things autumn. …But wait! There’s more!
