Oatmeal Strawberries and Cream Cookies



Urg. So today when I was uploading my pictures for this post, it said I ran out of picture storage space. 
Boo. When I went to see how much it was to buy more, it said there's a monthly payment of $2.50. Which isn't bad, BUT I really don't want to worry about paying up monthly… 'cause then I'm basically paying to write my blog! Does anybody know of a way I could do a one-time payment for more storage?

So… This weekend we're going to Windhoek. It shall be fun(: Shopping, a movie, and a Fifa game. AHHH YAYAHHHH! But no worries, we're still having an awesome guest blogger tomorrow AND the Sweet Saturdays is scheduled to post in the morning. 

ANYHOO… Cookies should cheer me up about the little piccy issueeeeeeeee…
 Awhile ago, I came up with the idea of switching up your basic oatmeal raisin cookie and throwing in some other stuff. I love how cookies are so versatile… Chocolate chip, dark chocolate, white chocolate, peanut butter, butterscotch. Dried fruit, nuts, and candy. The possibilities are literally endless!

Oatmeal Strawberries and Cream Cookies
1 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. butter, melted
1 1/2 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
2 1/2 c. oats
1 c. dried strawberries 
{I'm sure you could use fresh berries too. But the only ones I can find here are TINY and moldy.}
1 white chocolate bar

Preheat your oven to 350ºF. Chop up the white chocolate and strawberries into chunks; set aside. 
In a large mixing bowl, blend the butter, sugar, vanilla, and egg until smooth. Add in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir until combined. Mix in the oats, strawberries, and white chocolate. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto a cookie sheet. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.

  1. Hi Sophie! Love your blog by the way. :) I don't know which photo storage site you're using but I store mine on Picassa. Like Blogspot, it's a google family member and it has lots of storage. Hope this helps.
