I swear, the only thing that gets more heated around here are debates about toilet paper consumption.
I like the warm. Jay likes things cold. Freezing cold. Like, all windows open while it's snowing out cold.
Sometimes I think the greatest gift I could give my boyfriend would be to set him adrift on an arctic ice floe, with a sack of quarter pounders, and wave as he gently floats away into the frigid sea.
Thankfully, I can distract him with a big plate of cookies while I crank up the heat -- and then everyone's happy.
Ginger Cranberry Oat Cookies
1 cup butter, room temperature
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
2 1/3 cup rolled oats
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup dried cranberries
Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking tray with parchment.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until light and smooth.
Add the remaining ingredients and stir until well combined. Scoop 1-2 tablespoons of the dough onto the baking tray and bake for 10-13 minutes. Allow to cool for a few minutes, then remove to a wire rack.
