Can’t Decide? Two Tone Cookies

Jeffrey Smith. Couldn’t decide on his birthday treat. He was torn between sugar cookies and oatmeal raisan cookies. I’m not sure if you know this, but I can’t decide things….it’s just not possible. So I thought that I would handle it. I…would just give him both…combined into one cookie! I mean..yeah they are completely different cookies…but what they hay! It’s better than sugar cookies with raisans inside (that was his brilliant idea…yeah not so much!)

First you gotta start with the oatmeal cookie dough…utttterly delish!! I used my “Cookies for Katherine” recipe from last november. (Look it up! hehe) But, I only used 2 1/2 cups oatmeal instead of three so they wouldn’t be as “thick,” and I used two 1/5 ounce boxes of raisins instead of chocolate chips. Don’t worry…it made sense in my mind.
Next you gotta make the sugar cookie dough! This is my absolute faaavorite sugar cookie recipe and it’s so utterly delicious that I can’t even contain myself…it’s it’s so easy…oh my…just go an try it……!!
Lauren’s Absolutely Deliciously Amazing Easy Sugar Cookie Recipe
Items Needed
  • One Pillsbury white cake mix
  • Items called for on the back of the mix
  • 1 1/2 cups of flour
  • white sanding sugar to top


1. Preheat oven to 350*F

2. Combine all ingredients in electric mixer and mix for two minutes.

(Skip these next steps if you are making the two tone cookies)

3. Drop by tablespoons onto greased cookie sheet. Batter will appear “sticky.”

4. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until firm and light golden brown on bottom.

Two Tone Cookies
Items Needed:
  • One batch oatmeal raisin cookie batter
  • One batch of Lauren’s sugar cookie batter

1. Preheat oven to 350*F.

2. Roll Oatmeal raisin into little crescent shaped logs, place on greased cookie sheets.

3. Spoon sugar cookie dough next to the oatmeal “log.” Attempt to “form” them slightly together.

4. Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until cookies are “light” golden brown on the bottom and the sugar part is firm. The oatmeal raisin cookie part will look a bit underdone…but don’t worry….they will be perfect. Just give in, and take them out of the oven!!!

The yummy yummy finished product!! They turned out beautifully! You can try this with absolutely annnny cookie batters. I took two completely different cookie batters and they turned out perfect! I’m not exactly sure what Jeff thought about the whole situation haha!
