During my first year of college, I generally avoided eating breakfast in the student union. They offered hash browns, and ham and egg sandwiches, basically as if you were going to Mcdonald’s every day. I constantly looked for easy things to prepare in my mini microwave in the dorm, and seemed to take a liking to instant oatmeal.
Although not the healthiest breakfast, it wasn’t terrible, and it seemed that I had taken a liking (more like loving) to the Peaches ‘N Cream flavor, enjoying it every morning. Recently, I was able to recreate that love in the form of a soft, delicious cookie. Hellllooo breakfast cookie!
Peaches ‘N Cream Oatmeal Cookies
1/2 C Butter
1 C White Sugar
1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1 1/2 C Flour
1/2 Tsp Salt
1/2 Tsp Baking Soda
1 Can or Jar of Peaches, 8 Ounces in syrup (you’ll add 1/4 C of the syrupand chopped peaches to the dough)
2 C Oats
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Cream the butter and the sugar. Add the egg, vanilla, and 1/4 C syrup, and continue beating. Add the flour, salt, and baking soda, and beat until a soft dough forms. Beat or stir in the oats. Cut up the peaches into small cubes, then beat them into the dough as well.
Drop by tablespoons full onto a greased cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes, until the bottoms begin to brown.
