Oatmeal Cookies

Cinnamon Raisin Oatmeal Cookie Bars
It's what's for supper!

To me cooking is not an exact science. To the extent I'm willing to call that which is clearly baking, cooking.

all the ingredients in a bowl, lets see if I can remember and or identify them, sugar, gots to be sugar, cinamon, oatmeal, raisins, lots of cinnamon, in fact, if there is a secret to cinnamon raison oatmeal cookies, its the cinnamon, lots of cinnamon

The ingredients I used were:
ingredients again, with the added bonus of an egg, got no idea why this deserved a second photo, of course, many will be more focused on why I thought any of it was deserving of commeroation as a website in the first place

I added a little water.

And here it's flowing out of the bowl into a pre-buttered glass dish. It's what I microwaved the butter in.

I used a utility called UnFREEz 2.1, which ironically enough is free, rather than, Un-Free (as it's named) to make the gifs on this page. UnFREEz utilizes a stupendously easy drag and drop interface. And, of course, the price is right.

Now, this next little bit is a beauty. It took me an hour to program. Yes, I am a coding GOD!!! Which is sarcasm in case that's not clear.

Anyhow, what did I get for my hour, you ask? Well, if one were to click on the picture below, the confection will slowly bake before one's eyes.

Well, OK. Not really. But close enough for me.

The first picture is raw; and then, in the next, it's fully cooked. But two pictures later and it's still cooling down. And that my friends is the magic of the Internet and the JavaScript programming language.

Did you click the picture?

Come on. You know you want to...

Below is another GIF. There will probably be plenty more of those in the weeks to come.

Look at the bubbling butter. That's what baking is all about.

Oh, and along with the extra butter oozing up the sides, I salted the butter on the bottom and sprinkled the top with yet more, because I know what I like and that's sugar, salt, and butter. Of course, that just sounds unhealthy, so I also would like to point out that I used plenty of cinnamon, which I believe has magical properties, enabling it to offset any deleterious effect from any of the other ingredients.

Add a little ice cream, and it's good to go.

Feel free to guess which bowl is mine.

oatmeal cookie bars with pecans pressed into the squares to the side with a few pieces missing, ice cream carton in the back and two bowls of ice cream and oatmeal cookie bars, one has more than the other, have whichever you prefer, there's plenty more

Yes, that's right. The big one (like the real big one) without any ice cream in it yet.

Just kidding, mom. Geez.

Failure to follow instructions (as might perhaps be found on other websites) may lead to chaos and anarchy. Recipe books are full of measurements and proportions for a reason. I on the other hand, am genetically incapable of following a recipe. Please, do not follow my example... unless of course, you want to. Who am I to stand in the way of your freewill?

The PROGRAMMING GOD of click-able picture advancement, that's who!!!


Clearly, the man has had too much sugar!

So, um, yeah. I guess that's it for today. Anyhow, if things got a little squirrelly, I'd like to take this opportunity to blame the sugar. That and the excessive amounts of cinnamon I tend to put in these sort of things.
