Chocolate Cherry Toffee Oatmeal Cookies
Number of Servings: more than 8
Added By: Radeen
My Yacht Name: Island Spirit
Yacht Manufacturer: Island Packet
Ingredients: 1 1/2 C flour 1 t baking soda 1 & 3/4 sticks of butter, soft 3/4 C white sugar 3/4 C brown sugar 1 egg 1 t vanilla 1 1/2 C old fashioned oats 6 oz bittersweet or dark chocolate chips 4 oz toffee bits 1 C dried cherries chopped  
Directions: Preheat oven to 350. Sift together flour and baking soda. Cream butter and sugars until fluffy. Add egg and beat on high. Add vanilla and beat. Gradually add flour mixture, beating on low, just until combined. Stir in remaining ingredients. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto non stick baking pans or parchment paper. (I like to form balls and flatten them slightly.) Bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Rotate cookie pans after 5 minutes. Allow to cool about 30 seconds before removing from pan. Can be stored in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
Comments: Original recipe called for 2 sticks butter but I thought the cookies were too thin and crispy. I am experimenting...may try 1 & 1/2 sticks. Original recipe called for 7 oz. toffee bit...I thought that made them too sweet and too crunchy.

Yacht Manufacturer: Pacific Seacraft

E.g.: 1/2 c butter creamed over heat with 1 c sugar. Blend in 1 egg yolk. slowly add 1/2 c liqueur stirring constantly until sauce thickens. 
Directions: Beat eggs until frothy. Beat in sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add milk and butter, mixing well. Stir in nuts/raisins. Butter a 9x13 or smaller but adequately deep pan and spread bread cubes in bottom. Pour liquid over bread. Let sit 30 minutes, patting bread into liquid if needed. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minute - test and bake longer if needed until cooked in center.  
Comments: This is a great way to use up bread you may have bought that doesn't measure up to brands you buy at home, or ones that are homemade!
