In Individual Family Studies or IFS we just got into the cooking segment. First we had to learn the safety. For example you shouldn’t use wet pot holders, shouldn’t let any thing that you spilled on the floor, and many more safety tips and rules to follow. After we learned all of the safety rules we learned all about measuring. We learned about what tools we should use for certain ingredients. For example there are different measuring cups for dry and liquid ingredients. Just lately we did a lab. For the lab we made Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Waffle Cookies. It wasn’t a lot of work, but also a lot fun. It is a lot of fun in IFS. We didn’t more then cooking, but this is the mos most unit so far. The recipe will also be including that we used.
Oatmeal-Chocolate Chip Waffle Cookies
Yields: 6-8 Cookies
2tbsp. Butter, melted
2tbsp. plus 1 1/2 tsp. firmly packed brown sugar
1\2 large egg (beat and measure out half)
1/4 tsp. vanilla
3 tbsp. flour
1/4 tsp. baking soda
Generous pinch of salt
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp. old fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Nonstick cooking spray
Heat the waffle iron. In a large bowl, beat the butter and brown sugar until smooth. Whisk in the eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir in the oats and chocolate chips.
Coat the grid of the waffle iron with nonstick cooking spray. Use a tablespoon to portion out a cookie onto each waffle section. Close the iron and cook until set and beginning to brown, 1 1/2- 3 minutes, depending on the heat of the waffle iron. Use a thin metal spatula to transfer the cooked cookies to a wire rack and repeat with remaining dough.
