I got a good one this time. I made an oatmeal brownie cookie recipe off of a box and it actually didn’t suck! What?!?!? Yes this happens lol I did however learn something about myself. I learned that I am horrible at estimating serving size.
The recipe said it made 3 dozen cookies. 3 DOZEN! Wanna guess how many I got? 21!!! I got 21 freakin cookies!! I should have had at least 30 if not the full 36, but I didn’t even get 2 dozen.
Now lets keep in mind cooking times when we consider this recipe. The fact that they were even edible was awesome considering I was kinda winging it at that point. With cookies twice as big as they should have been it would take extra time, but I tend to overcook and dry out cookies and baked goods.
I haven’t gotten it yet because I am scared of raw eggs makin me sick. Not sure why because I have never been sick from raw eggs, and I used to lick the batter bowl as a kid.
On to the recipe, actually super easy too! Literally just throw everything into a bowl and mix! You dont even have to form the cookies at the end, just plop some batter onto the cookie sheet and rock out.
There are very few pictures because this one was a spur of the moment share that I wasn’t planning on, especially since I did not tweak the recipe at all. They were just too good not to share! For the full original recipe and other images visit the Duncan Hines site here.

***This whole *Bake 12 minutes* thing definitely took my oversized cookies like 25 minutes to cook. If your serving size isn’t all out of whack like mine, you will be fine. If you are like me and suck at measuring, then good luck and may the baking gods be on your side lol They usually hate me, hence why I overcook everything usually!
