The Next Best Thing To Fishing...

What is that, you ask? Making COOKIES!!!!  Ok, who's kidding who?  It's eating them, of course!  For those not getting out this weekend, here is something scrumpiously delicious to bake in the oven while you are watching the NCAA March Madness B-Ball Tourney! : )

             RD'S FAMOUS


Large Recipe...(You can half it using 2 large eggs)  And you can freeze dough and use later too...

2 C. Butter Flavor Crisco                                 
2 C. Sugar
1 1/2 C. Brown Sugar
5 eggs
2 C. Oatmeal
4 C. Flour
2 tsp. Baking soda
1 tsp. Salt
2 TB. Vanilla
1 C. Pecans or Macadamias chopped (opt.)
1  Bag Milk Chocolate Chips
1 Bag White Chocolate Chips


Cream Crisco and sugars, add eggs & vanilla.  Combing flour, oats, soda, and salt, and add to sugar mixture.  Add choc. chips and pecans or chopped macadamia nuts.  Bake at 375 for 8-10 mins.  Take out just as cookies start to turn golden brown and allow to sit on pan for a few min. to finish baking.  (You can resist, just a few more minutes!)  This keeps them soft!
Enjoy!!  : )   


  1. I'll be over for the games tomorrow. I like my milk ice cold.

  2. Don't forget that fiberglass flyrod for afterwards...You know that I wouldn't be a very good hostess without taking you out to the Provo! heehee

  3. Wow! You are speaking my language. Especially the macadamia part. Somebody has to fish this weekend tho.

  4. I will take an "RD" hat and a half dozen cookies. My head and stomach live at .............................., Idaho.

  5. Mark ~ As I said, Fishing is the BEST thing to do...

    Mel ~ I will bring up a hat to you when we fish the South Fork this year! And maybe I can hide some cookies for ya too...

  6. Those look better than a brookie rising to a dry fly.

    Home made cookies, true comfort.

  7. Wow, with recipes too- this blog has it all. If we spot you tying those on a hook we'll know something is up.
