Lesson learned: Ouch


They look yummy. And they are.  But these small little tidbits made for a simple farewell to a coworker cost me a thumb. Or use of it. At least for a while…

Lesson Learned: When using oven mitts to remove hot stoneware from the oven, put them ON. Don’t cheat by trying to just them flat. There are dangerous places for thumbs to sneak past the protection.

And in case you’re interested in learning a super fast and yummy cookie option…
Cake mix cookies, variety style.
1 white cake mix
1/2 cup oil
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/3 cup oats

Mix it all together by hand, then add in whatever you like. So far some of my favorites are to roll little balls in coconut or cinnamon/sugar, add chocolate chips, or leave plain and decorate with icing.  I’m going to try them next with a bit more oats and raisins. Mmmmmm.

I make them small, bake them on a stone ungreased (if well used/”seasoned”), preheat the oven to 375 and bake for 10 minutes. Leave them on the stone for about 5 minutes, then move to wire rack.

Easy. De-lish.


  1. I love making cake mix cookies!!! I'll try adding oats next time -- that looks great. Soooo sorry about the thumb. :-(

  2. Looks mighty good. :)Sorry about the thumb. :(

  3. Seriously, I had to laugh about the thumb. I have done that also, thinking it was quicker.

    Cookies look good. Stop tempting me.

  4. OUCH hope it's feeling better! Everything looks yummy!
