Oatmeal -- it's from a late '40s early '50s Encyclopedia of Cooking, but my mother modified it and I copied her modifications into my own volumes of the same cookbook.  Molasses, softened raisins or sometimes chopped dates, chopped pecans or walnuts.  I like the dough a little 'wetter' than the recipe, so the cookies spread and brown around the edges. They're chewy and moist.  If I sub whole wheat in for 1/2 the white flour, I can fool myself into calling them healthful.  When my kids were too late to get breakfast before the bus came, I'd give them 2 cookies each to eat as they walked the long driveway to the bus stop.  If they took a little thermos of juice or milk, they'd leave their empties in the mailbox.

I would have to say that oatmeal chocolate chip and toffee chocolate chip are one of my two top cookies.  I do have to say that all cookies are great!  My nick name growing up was cookie monster.

I never met a cookie I didn’t like. But if I had to choose just one as a favorite let it be peanut butter.

Here's how we have our health and cookies too: train like senior athletes. We ride over 350 miles per month on our recumbent trikes and walk 4.8 miles 3-4 times a week, and get in 45 minutes on the mini-trampoline (rebounder) 2-3 times a week and lift weights 2-3 times a week.

 

We don't eat cookies often (perhaps every six months), but when we do they are usually Fig Newtons or Gingersnaps. Once in a great while we'll buy a package of Milanos or Pirouettes.

 

The key is moderation and balance. 

 

If good health is important to you, giggle at Cookie Monster, but don't follow his example, OK? Smiley Happy

@g28834s - That's "old think" in my book, that people need sugar/food to sooth their souls .. I'd rather do something fun & healthy.

"How do cookies relate to "healthy living"?"

 

They soothe the soul. 'specially me dear ol' mum's molasses cookies. That's healthy enough for me.

What a great tradition, and even coming from an American-Italian family, haven't heard of taking a box of cookies home (although that always happened at christenings, weddings, wakes).

 

Not a cookie person, I have to say recently found Oreo brownies @ 99 cent stores and they, while not technically "cookie", are pretty awesome!

 

Great topic; thanks for posting!

"Old fashioned" oatmeal with raisins.  I'm not big on chocolate anything.
