Making Cookies is Easier Than You Think
If you are in a creative mood and you feel like making up your own cookie recipe, you can do it! All you need to remember is 1-2-3: one part sugar to two parts fat (up to half the fat could be nut butter) to three parts flour (up to one-third of the flour could be quick-cooking oats).
Add whatever else you want — lemon peel, chocolate chips, walnuts, coconut, or whatever you already have in the house that you think might be good in a cookie. Add a little salt. Drop the batter by spoonfuls (or use a small ice-cream scoop) onto a baking sheet and bake at 375°F until the cookies look done, 10-20 minutes, depending on how big you make them. I like to use a small ice-cream scoop to portion out the cookie dough.
