First Memories

As a child, I loved to read. When my family made trips to the mall, they would leave me unattended in the bookstore for hours while they did their shopping. I’d bury my head in the tales of Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield, Nancy Drew, Anastasia, and Tintin. But these days the books I read are more of the culinary variety or…also whatever catches my eye. One of the very first recipes I ever made (with the assistance of the Mothership) was Pee Wee cookies – a recipe from the Pee Wee Scouts series (a literary equivalent to the Girl Scouts if you will). For a long, long time, it was the only recipe my family ever made. Part of it had to do with the fact that the Mothership really liked these cookies and another part of it was that it was really one of the only cookie recipes we had in hand. And that it’s darned easy to make.

In honour of Mother’s Day, I whipped up a batch of Pee Wee cookies for the Mothership and presented it to her, along with a Sudoku book and some Belcolade chocolates.

*chomp*

Want to make a batch yourself?
Mix cream 1 cup butter + 3/4 cup brown sugar + 3/4 cup white sugar.
Add in 2 teaspoons vanilla and 2 eggs.
Carefully mix in 2 cups of flour, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon salt.
Add 1 cup of oats, 8oz chocolate chips, 2 cups of cereal, and 1/2 cup of nuts.
(Mothership’s cereal of choice for this cookie – Cap’n Crunch – a far cry from her usual granola & bran buds)
Drop spoonfuls on a cookie sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes in a 350F oven.
Thanks to the Pee Wee Scouts for making my childhood that much sweeter!

    I just made these! I added some overripe banana and a bit of nutmeg, and used Vector. Nice and chewy!
