So named at the bake sale a couple months ago by the Klingon CO/ex RL USMC

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter softened
3/4 cup orange marmalade
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
3 cups quick or old-fashioned oats {Note:Last week I made these and took the time to toast the oats in the preheated oven for 3-4 mins and I liked the tastes. YMMV as to if it's worth the trouble.}
1 2/3 cups (11-oz. pkg.) white chocolate chips
Directions:
PREHEAT oven to 375° F.

COMBINE flour, baking soda, salt in a small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, marmalade, eggs and in large mixer bowl. Gradually mix in flour mixture. Stir in oats and morsels. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

BAKE for 7 to 8 minutes for chewy cookies or 9 to 10 minutes for crisp cookies. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

BIG DAMN COOKIE VARIATION:
This is how I did them for the bakesale and they looked more impressive.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Use an ice cream scoop to drop the cookies then flatten them a bit. I fit about six to a sheet. Bake for 18 to 20 mins.
2009 has to an improvement. I'm not doing anything but I never bother with New Years. I did make something for dinner that turned out pretty good just by throwing together what I had on hand. I going to post it so I remember how I did it.
Mexican
Roasted Corn & Tomato Soup
I can whole tomatoes
1small package frozen corn
1small onion
olive oil
1 can black beans
chile powder
chipolte chile powder
clilantro
Heat oven to 400 f
Drain tomatoesnd reserve juice.
Drain and rinse beans.
Put corn tomatoes and diced onion in pan with two Tbs of olive oil. Roast until the the onions are soft and start carmelize and tomatoes are deep red. [I cooked it all in my big oven proof fry pan so I didn't dirty two pots.] Deglaze pan with juice and about a cup of water. Blend until Tomatoes are creamy and there's some corn left whole. Add beans and seasoning and simmer on stove till warmed.

It's not long so I wont bother with a cut. My Grocery store is awful. For a place that's always busy the the stuff never seems fresh. The have really limited produce and what there is blah! I've gootten used to checking the date on everything before I put it in my cart and buying most of the veggies I eat frozen.{even then I've had to deal with stuff that looks like it's been thawed and refrozen}

There are problems with stuff you wouldn't think of too, I wanted to make oatmeal coookies so I looked at bagged nots in the produce area all of them had a experation date of Octber last year. So I bypassed them and picked up a thing of raisins I couldn't find the date on them but how can a raisin get old? So they went in my cart. When I opened them they were really hard and dryer than than they should've been. I found the date and the darn things expired in 2004! I eating them isn't going to kill me but they won't add a bit of flavor to the cookies either.

Do other areas have this problem? Is it the time of year and/or the gas prices? The only other store always looks dirty and has even less as far as produce.
I've seen places on-line to get produce. Anyone use them? What do you think they seem pretty expensive.

Cheer me up go read the fic I posted yesterday.
These were supposed to be applesauce oatmeal cookies but I didn't have the sauce They turned out very good anyway.

1Vegetable oil spray
1/2 cup grated apple I used golden delicious
1/3 raisins
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon canola or corn oil.
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup rolled oats
1cup AP flour
1teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/8 [a pinch] teaspoon of cardamon

Preheat oven to 350f. Spray two cookie sheets with the oil. In a medium bowl mix the grated apple, raisins, corn oil, sugars and vanilla. In another bowl mix the rest of the igredients together then mix the wet into the dry. Drop by heaping teaspoon onto the cookie sheets flatten a bit and bake for 12-15 mins.
tTwo cookies are 105 calories and there's only 2 grams of fat. I'm sure I could buy cookes with less calories but my house would smell so darn good.
