Cowboy Oatmeal Cookies

Sorry for my absence those past days - I was apartment hunting in Vienna, or more precisely taking a look at the apartment that was already promised to me via internet. Skype makes it possible.
I am really happy that I finally found something that seems nice. So much trouble with pets and nudists - both are not really my favorite flatmates.
Besides doing a short trip to Vienna I spent the time in the “Weinviertel” in the Wachau, Austria. A lovely region for everyone who likes good wine, good food and a picturesque landscape. I definitely consider myself as more of city person I sometimes love to get out in the nature and take a break from the everyday life. But more of this trip in the next post.

Before leaving I made cowboy oatmeal cookies. Great recipe for basic outmeal cookies. I just put in whatever I found in the kitchen that day. So one is very flexible with the ingredients.

Have a wonderful day,
