Oatmeal Cookies with Cranberries and Chocolate Chunks

We always have fun while working at our two wonderful inns in Brewster, the Captain Freeman Inn and Brewster by the Sea. This morning was no different as our great breakfast chef, Nick, was humming as he was preparing our wonderful Wild Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes. Nick is a hummer and I love to tease him. The other day he was singing “Kiss me once and kiss me twice and kiss me once again”. We laughed together as he told me that Cliff, the owner of the Bramble Inn where Nick is also the chef, was humming that song all evening. He said it was addictive, and he could not get the song out of his mind. We  both started singing the song, but we both could only remember the first few lines of the classic song by Louis Armstrong.  I’ve included all of the words Nick and Cliff so that you can sing the entire song…….

Kiss me once…and kiss me twice
Then kiss me once again
It’s been a long, long time
Haven’t felt like this, my dear
Since I can’t remember when
It’s been a long, long time

You’ll never know how many dreams
I’ve dreamed about you
Or just how empty they all seemed without you
So kiss me once, then kiss me twice
Then kiss me once again
It’s been a long, long time

(instrumental break)

Oh, kiss me once…and kiss me twice
Then kiss me once again
It’s been a long…such, a long time
I haven’t felt like this my dear
Since I don’t remember when
It’s been a long….been a mighty long time

You’ll never know how many dreams
I’ve dreamed about you
Or how empty they all seem without you
So kiss me once…and kiss me twice
And kiss me once again
It’s been a long…long time

It’s been a mighty, mighty long time

This morning Nick made my favorite oatmeal cookie for our afternoon tea which includes old fashion oatmeal, fresh cranberries, roasted pecans and large chunks of dark chocolate. The cookie is addictive and guests at both of our Brewster Cape Cod Inns went crazy over these wonderful cookies. We gave several cookies warm out of the oven to our staff and guests that were near bye. So then  I started singing “Cookie madness at the Freeman”. It had a nice little ring to it, and I decided to make that the title of today’s blog.

We make thousands of cookies at our two Cape Cod Bed and Breakfasts and are always trying new recipes. This oatmeal cookie has become my favorite and is special in that we use fresh cranberries (cut in half) and really good dark chocolate that we buy in large blocks and cut into chunks for the cookies.

Needless to say our guests love our cookies that we serve at the Captain Freeman and Brewster by the Sea. They are always homemade and very special!
