I know food photography rules. Don’t take pictures head on, don’t get to close to your food, and good photographs have good composition.
So, explain to me what is it so wrong with taking a close up, head on picture of a stack of delicious homemade Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies.
These cookies are packed full of peanut butter flavor. They are heartier since they have oatmeal in them, and they are soft and chewy.
The recipe was adapted from The Mennonite Treasury of Recipes cookbook.
Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, mix together thoroughly:
1/2 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. peanut butter
1/2 c. granulated sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar (packed)
1 tsp. vanilla
Stir together, and stir in:
1 c. all-purpose flour
1/4 c. quick cooking oats
1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
Drop with dining tablespoon (approximately 3 inches apart) on prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes until cookies are set, but not hard. Makes 1.5 dozen large cookies.
