Giant Date Oatmeal Cookie (for 1 or 2)


Sometimes I feel like making a large batch of cookies. and other times I am constrained by the clock and can only squeeze in enough minutes to make a small batch. This recipe is for those occasions where you may have less than enough time in your busy day. In under 8 minutes, you can throw together some sweet albeit healthy ingredients to make a deliciously chewy cookie for 1 or 2 people. I have made this particular cookie almost a dozen times this winter, and you will want to watch the clock while they bake. At 14 minutes, the cookie is slightly gooey in the center and just underdone enough for those who like a cookie dough taste. If you prefer a crispier oatmeal cookie, I suggest baking it for 17 minutes.
