The “I Don’t Want to be a Lawyer Anymore” Cookies

Hola Bloggies:

So a while back I came up with a cookie recipe. It’s full of oatmeal, multiple types of chocolate chips (what I use changes on the mood I’m in but my favourites are white chocolate, carob, and semisweet) and it’s utterly delish!!! Since I first made the cookies while the Fiancé was away for work, I decided to take them in to work and share them with the staff.

Me: I baked cookies!!! *putting them on the communal treat table*

A while later . . . .

Co-Worker: Wow were those ever good!

Me: Thanks! Happy

Co-Worker: Seriously!!! You could start a business with those cookies alone! You should call them the “I Don’t Want to be a Lawyer Anymore” Cookies!

And hence how my best creation thus far got it’s name!

Today, a bunch of us decided to have a joint garage sale (also known as a yard sale). While I scared up some things to pawn off on other people sell I was mostly excited about the prospect of testing my cookies on paying customers.




Despite not having a great turn out at the sale, my cookies managed to sell like woah (yes that’s an actual term in my world)! In fact they were the run away success of the event. My two dozen cookies were gone in no time flat!!! I’m kind of proud of myself!

Now this is the part where I tell you how to get your own batch of the “I Don’t Want to be a Lawyer Anymore” cookies – on Monday, May 17th, Bobbi at N Her Shoes is hosting a blogger bake sale with all proceeds going towards her efforts to raise funds for the St. Judes Children’s Research Hospital (she’s running the Chicago Marathon for this cause). The cause is a great one and the cookies are delish!!!

If you are interested in bidding on my baked goodies (my apologies to my American amigos as I will be shipping to Canada only) or on any other of the wonderful products please head over to Bobbi’s blog on Monday starting at 11 AM Pacific Time. All bids will start at $20USD with the auction closing at midnight.

The winner of my auction will receive one dozen cookies with love from moi! Please note they contain, oats, eggs, and chocolate chips. And although they come from a peanut free home (I’m allergic), I can’t guarantee that the chips themselves have not come into contact with nuts. Lastly, please note that I can customize the chips included in the cookies with the default being carob, semisweet, and white chocolate.

Happy Bidding Friends!!!! And remember – they’re yummers!!!!
