Picnic Portable Cookies

The girls of Heritage House and their children are going on a special field trip-- Jazz All Star music at Fairview Park tomorrow night.  Costa Mesa hosts Concerts in the Park on Tuesday evenings in July.  So, rather than show up with groceries and another too hot kitchen demo,  I take a picnic dinner for them to tote along.  This year, soft Hawaiian Roll sliders will accompany cool and spicy cole slaw, and cold jazzed-up watermelon seems fitting.  I couldn’t get my head around a portable dessert that wouldn’t require additional paper, utensils or wet cleanup.

Although Ina’s Salty Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies would normally be found on an autumn menu, they called to me.

It is said, one shouldn’t judge a book by its cover; I add, judge a cookie by its raw dough.  You know who you are!

The drill is the same; wet ingredients always at room temperature.

 Add eggs one at a time.

Dry ingredients are added in just to combine.  No need to get overzealous with the mixer.

Fold in the beauty nuggets.

For convenience, I used dark chocolate morsels rather than hacking up a bittersweet bar on this occasion.

Ina’s cookies were a little bit larger than mine because I wanted cookies for smaller kidlet hands.

Salty goodness tops crispy oatmeal and dark chocolate

with a tart interloper-winner, winner.
