This month's sourdough surprise was to make cookies. Any kind of cookies. Yum. But here it the thing. I am kinda lazy... As much as I love cookies, making them can be a bit of a hassle. Add to that the inevitable nap-less days for the girls, and it really doesn't make sense to me to keep having to open the oven and deal with multiple hot trays. So when I want cookies, I make cookie bars instead. One pan, one trip into the oven, it is just easier in my little head.
The hardest part of the process was choosing a recipe. Yes, I would have liked to have made a lot of different types of cookies, but I just knew that wasn't going to be in the cards. But there were so many to choose from! My sourdough loving friends put together a Pinterest board with bunches of suggestions, and they all looked and sounded really good. I decided to combine a few of the recipes, then add a little of my own insanity to the mix. I created sourdough oatmeal chocolate-chocolate chip cookie bars Quite a mouthful to say, but REALLY good!
The dough came together really easily. I mean, all I had to do was mix everything together...!
