The Ready Set Cook cooking challenge is being continued in one of my cooking groups, and in this second part, I am posting this recipe for Blueberry Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies.

If you recall, a couple weeks ago I told you about #RSC, in that I have been presented with a limited list of cooking ingredients and am confined to that to develop recipes. It’s sort of like a chopped basket.

Here are links to the recipes I created a couple of weeks ago in Round One:

Curried Chicken Lollipops

Vodka Paloma

Creamy Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo Soup

Wild Rice and Mushroom Cabbage Rolls

My Curried Chicken Lollipops appear to be the most well received, although  I like them all. I think the ease of that recipe made it popular.

For the second round, the ingredients and courses have changed. The object is to select a course, and create a recipe using one of the main ingredients and anything from the pantry list but nothing else. I wonder…what would you have made with these?

As I play, I get to create one recipe per course category.  The cookies today represent my offering for desserts. I will be posting my breakfast, main dish, and condiment recipes in the coming days. Of course, I am only obligated to create one recipe per round, but I have such fun with it I do as many as I can!

Blueberry Oatmeal Chocolate Chip CookiesI hope you enjoy these as much as we did here at my home. The blueberries in these are not overwhelming- similar to using raisins except with a brighter fruity flavor. Oatmeal cookies are always one of my favorite cookies. And having the chocolate in them sets them over the top, I think, especially since chocolate chip cookies are another favorite of mine. What kind of cookies do you like?

Stay tuned for the other recipes for #RSC. I should have all of those up by next Tuesday at the latest.
