30 Days 30 Cookies: Oat Cherry White Chocolate

I know I missed yesterday! I was just so darn tired. I managed to get a post up on my instagram but I’ll eventually write out the recipe for the day I missed.

Today has been hectic too. While I no longer have the stress that is working in the culinary industry during the holidays my current job supports the culinary industry. As holidays approach chef’s tend to get stressed, it’s completely understandable, chances are you’re working overtime, you’re away from your friends and family, and through all of it you probably feel the pressure to keep on a happy face because it’s the holidays. I remember I would be working on Thanksgiving or Christmas and I would have people tell me as they picked up their holiday treats ,” aw it’s terrible that you have to work. You should be at home with your family.” Well if I was at home with my family who would make your pumpkin pie?

Last year I only had to make two pies, it was wonderous. This year I’m only making a piecaken. Granted I’m not attempting the one made famous by one of my favorite chef Zac Young but I decided I wanted to try the concept. I’ll probably write a more detail post about it later once I make it. In addition to the piecaken I am, of course, making cookies.

Today’s cookie is another oatmeal variant. Something about oatmeal cookies just feels like fall to me.
