Cherry Pie and Chocolate Chip cookies

I was cleaning up my memory card (getting ready for Vegas tomorrow!) and realized I never posted about the CHERRY-TOPPED LEMON CHEESECAKE PIE I made a few weeks ago. For some reason I was really wanting to make some kind of Cherry pie. It was good.. a little too lemony but that could have been because I used a little too much lemon juice. Mikey, Frank and everyone at Frank's command (well anyone who got some) loved it. So it was good :)

Tonight I decided to make the oatmeal cookies I attempted two weeks ago (they were the ones with the messed up recipe). Just before I was ready to put them on the pan I realized I forgot to add in the oatmeal. I had used chocolate chips instead of raisins so Frank told me I should just keep them as chocolate chip cookies instead of making them oatmeal. They turned out great!! Now I'm ready to walk them off for the next 3 days.

OATMEAL COOKIES (or chocolate chip cookies)

1 1/4 Cups Flour - Sifted
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Cup Butter - Softened
1/4 Cup Sugar
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar - Firmly Packed
1 Package Jell-O Pudding Vanilla
2 Eggs
3 1/2 Cups Quick Cooking Rolled Oats (if making them oatmeal cookies)
1 Cup Raisins or Chocolate Chips (optional)
1 Teaspoon Vanilla

Mix flour with baking soda (my mom left out where you put in the oats, so I guess you could do that know). Combine Butter, sugars, vanilla and pudding mix in large mixer bowl. Beat until smooth and creamy. Beat in eggs. Gradually add flour mixture; stir in chips and nuts. Batter will be stiff (if you use oats). Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls, about 2 inches apart, onto ungreased sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

Oh God, those cookies soon delicious! The pudding mix sounds like it would add an interesting taste to them. I'll have to make them once I get off my diet, in about 4 months, lol.
