    HFN,

    I love the topless-cooking/apron-over-the-bare chest look. Your son cracks me up. Also, I dig the beard. I told danimal he needs to start growing one. I especially like that you shave around the mouth. I assume this is so your wife will still kiss you. Scruffy beard kiss = chaffed wife mouth.
    What's to explain? It's a bunch of people, most of whom you've never met, who are just as likely to be homicidal maniacs as they are to be normal everyday people, with whom you share the minutiae of your everyday life. It's totally normal, and everyone would understand.

    The boy is insane and I love him. I shave around the mouth because I don't really grow a mustache, it is thin and wispy and I hate it, Mrs. HFN has never mentioned a preference.

    I loved that photo also. Cooking with kids is one of my favorite things to do. It is a great bonding experience.

    A 2 page cookie recipe thread with only 4 actual recipies. Well, here is a 5th, Grandpa Everton's Oatmeal cookies. Feel free to play around with replacing chocolate chips with raisins, or coconut with walnuts. They are better a little undercooked than overcooked. At SLC altitude, 11-12 minutes is just right to get a crisp outside and chewy inside.

    ½ cup Shortening
    ½ cup brown sugar
    ½ cup sugar
    cream together

    1 beaten egg
    2 Tbs water
    ½ tsp vanilla
    Add to mixture

    2 Tbs + ¾ cup flour
    ½ tsp baking powder
    ¼ tsp banking soda
    ½ tsp salt
    Sift and add

    2 cups rolled oats
    1 cup coconut
    6 oz chocolate chips

    Final mixture should be stiff but not quite dry. Add slightly more or less oats to obtain right consistency. Drop on greased baking sheet and bake at 375 for 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned.

    Cake-like oreos:

    2 packages chocolate cake mix
    4 eggs
    2/3 cup vegetable oil

    Stir all ingredients until well blended. Roll dough into 1 inch balls, and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Slightly flatten the balls with the back of a spoon.

    Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in a preheated oven at 325 degrees, until firm. Let cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before removing to cool on wire racks.

    Filling:
    8 oz package cream cheese, softened
    3 cups confectioners' powdered sugar
    1 tbsp vanilla extract

    Beat together until smooth. Spread between two cooled cookies.

    If you don't post it, everyone will think you're a coward.

    Still though, how weird is it that creekster pm'd it to you? Especially after specifically letting everyone know he had it. I get that its a "Mrs. Fields" recipe, but unless he's sitting on a franchise I doubt he's violating an NDA by posting it here.

    Actually, it is not really a Mrs. Fields recipe. That appears to be an urban legend:

    http://urbanlegends.about.com/od/foo...kie_recipe.htm

    But it's still a good recipe. You can google dozens of variants of the recipe online. Here is the version I got from creekster. You probably want to cut it back by at least half as it makes a huge number of cookies.

    Mrs. Fields Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees

    1 lb. Butter
    2 C sugar
    2 C brown sugar
    4 Eggs
    3 C nuts
    2 tsp vanilla extract
    2 tsp baking powder
    2 tsp baking soda
    4 1/2 C Flour
    5 C Oats
    1 lb raisins
    1 t salt

    Cream butter and sugars. Add eggs. Add vanilla, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add flour and fold in oats.

    Cook 8-10 minutes.

    Mrs. Fields is a serious roll of toilet paper. Well maybe not the actual Mrs. Fields but the company. About 11 years ago they totally stiffed my on a tip when I delivered 40 pizzas to their office on the 6200 S. I-215 exit. I have never forgotten!

    Best ever chocolate chip cookies. Very simple, but totally awesome:

    1 cup butter
    3/4 cup sugar
    1 cup brown sugar

    2 eggs
    2 t vanilla

    3 cups four
    1/2 t salt
    3/4 t baking soda

    1 cup chocolate chips

    Cream the butter and sugars together. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Combine the dry ingredients and add to the rest. Then the chips (can't remember the quantity of chips for sure - go with what looks good.)

    IMO, the best chocolate chip cookies are still a little gooey when you pull them out of the oven and put them on a cooling rack. That will give them the best consistency when you eat them a few minutes later. In my oven, that means 340 degrees for 12 min.

    Don't overmix. There is a significant difference between doing this all by hand with a wooden spoon (preferred) and using beaters or a mixer.

    This is a very simple recipe, but with real butter and vanilla, you can't go wrong. I usually cut this recipe in half and make 24 cookies.

    Can I just say that baking cookies in a convection oven is a whole new world of greatness? We have several good recipes that have always worked pretty well, but they are amazing in our new oven.

    Do you have one? We haven't experimented too much with it yet. So far, the biggest difference I've noticed is with cookies. I baked a lasagna in it and noticed no difference--in fact, I tried to do it on the "convection convert" temp and had to cook it a little longer.

    We use it for everything except cakes. For some reason it always makes cakes really dry, at least IMO. I haven't noticed it taking longer, but maybe I just haven't been paying attention.

    The difference I have noticed, and especially after I come back from the cabin with an old oven, is that there are no hot spots when you use convection. Everything gets cooked the same. Our oven at the cabin always has one part that is almost burned, or if we pull it out when that part is just right a different part is underdone.

    The biggest difference we notes on cookies is that you can put 3-4 sheets in at the same time and they all come out fine.

    I have my chocolate chip cookie recipe down to a science. We replaced our oven this last winter w/ a convection unit, but I haven't used it yet for cookies because I don't want to mess with a good thing. My wife does use it and cooks both pans of cookies at the same time.

    We have noticed the same thing. It is a very good thing.

    Looks like a great recipe. If you feel like experimenting (looks like you may not) you can cut in 1/2 cup of a high-quality margarine in place of 1/2 the butter. You'll get a slightly less crunchy, "blonder" cookie. I prefer a 100% butter recipe myself, but we do make that change now and then just for a different texture. It makes a slightly more cake-like cookie.

    Alton Brown did an awesome cookie show. I learned from it that the amount of brown sugar is what dictates chewiness.

    I have a convection oven. I never think to use it. Perhaps I should pull out the manual. What types of things is the convection feature good for?

    Cookies.

    Like JL said, it allows you to bake a batch in cookies much more quickly because you can put in several sheets at a time. I've also noticed that they cook more evenly, i.e. bottoms don't burn.

    I don't mind trying new things, but substituting margarine for butter in a cookie recipe isn't one of those things. If you don't overbake the cookies you can get a nice, chewy cookie with butter.

    Despite your obvious collusion with Lebowski to prevent me from making these cookies, I thwarted your efforts tonight Creekster. I halved the recipe, but that still included 2 sticks of butter! I also swapped the raisins for chocolate chips, as I do not care for old fruit. They ended up being very tasty. My oven cooks hot, or I'm closer to the equator, or whatever it is, so my cookies only needed 6-7 mintues instead of 8-10.

    I also took down chrisenrut's oatmeal cooke recipe, or I should say Grandpa Everton's recipe. I'll make those next time I have shortening on hand, which wasn't today.

    So today at Stake Conf. HFN Jr. started talking about how the best cookie in the world comes from his school cafeteria. I thought what better time to resume HFN and kids make the cookies of CUF series.

    So without further ado, we made kcc's chocolate chip cookies. Much easier than DDD's recipe. I will need to plan ahead to make other people's recipes. Molasses and coconut? These aren't just things we have on hand in our pantry.

    Notice the wood spoon, we follow directions well!



    One cup didn't look good so we added more chips.


    Ready to bake. No I didn't put them in the microwave, I guess it has been left open for a while.


    Finished


    Goose loved it, HFN Jr. said the ones from his school are a little better.
