mentioned that I do not posses a lick of skill in driving in the snow? I happen to be held prisoner in my own home today in part because of the major snowstorm that hit the north east and also because... I got stuck in the driveway. Three neighbors came to my rescue and helped push my car so that the tail end wasn't protruding into the street. That's a sad and embarrassing story.
It just so happens that I don't have any worthy baking goods in this house (specifically eggs or milk) and I clearly seem to be having difficulty making my way to a grocery store. Too bad I used up all the good-neighborly-favors already today, which means no door-to-door begging.
I was left to improvise.
I decided to make Pete a treat from my childhood. Peanut Butter Oatmeal Fudge Cookies were one of my favorite desserts when I was little. I've never been an oatmeal cookie fan. Let's all be honest here. I'm in it for the chocolate. But these? These are no oatmeal cookie. They're dense and fudgy and completely delicious.
gluten-free quick cooking oats.
