My dining room table is covered with projects that need to be finished. I've got my sights set on finishing about 4 of them this week. As I was working out what was left to be done, what supplies needed to be picked up, i got a craving for cookies.

It happens a lot when the weather turns cooler and the rain falls in thick sheets. My go to cookie on days like this is oatmeal. Not oatmeal raisin just plain oatmeal with a lot of spice. The only downfall to this craving is that Collin and I both can be cookie monsters and 2 dozen cookies disappears faster than they should in a house with two adults living in it.  So I came up with an oatmeal cookie recipe for two.

Three large cookies all that this amazing cookie recipe makes. One of my secrets to getting them soft and chewy is to use homemade brown sugar. It couldn't be easier.

Homemade Brown Sugar

In a mason jar I add 1/2 cup of sugar to 1/2 Tablespoon of Molasses. Then blend with a fork until combined. The texture is moister and fluffier than any brown sugar I've ever bought and makes for a very soft chewy cookie.  So now that you know how to make brown sugar on to recipe
