Chewy oatmeal and date cookies October 7, 2009

The weather here in Sydney has taken a sudden dive.  All of a sudden our picture perfect not-winter has turned on us, reminding me that this city does indeed have seasons.  Albeit slightly irrational, fleeting ones.

I’ve been so cold this afternoon at home that I made a batch of these delicious cookies to warm the house, and our bellies.

I used Deb’s recipe for thick, chewy oatmeal raisin cookies.  I didn’t have any raisins in the house so I subbed them for chopped dates, and subbed the walnuts for a mixture of pecans and macadamia nuts.

They’re so delicious, I hope there’s some left for Joh when he gets home….
