One of the best books I bought on my last trip to America was about 1001 Cupcakes, cookies, and delightful treats. And the best thing about it was that there are pictures for each and every recipe. So, naturally I had to copy one and revise it for me. These cookies are soft, with a little bit of crunch on the outside, and are really just delectable. Oh and let me mention that they are semi-healthy too!
Ingredients: (Makes 30 cookies, give or take)
- 3/4 cup butter or margarine
- 1 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 4 tbsp water
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 4 1/2 cups plain oats
- 1 cup flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- (optional) Add 1/2 cup of chopped raisins
- Get out your baking sheet and grease it with butter or pam.
- Preheat the oven to 350F/180C.
- In a bowl, combine the butter and sugar and beat it together until it is light and pretty fluffy.
- Add the egg, water, and vanilla. Mix it together until it is smooth.
- Mix the oats, flour, salt, and baking soda together in another bowl.
- Gradually mix the oat mixture into the creamy mixture. Combining with each new addition.
- Once the mixture has all been added together, begin lumping spoonfuls on the baking sheet. (Add your raisins now if you'd like)
- Bake the cookies for approximately 15 minutes or until golden brown.
I definitely have a sweet tooth...but it's no good to make something so yummy, and not share, so I brought these to some friends to enjoy. Of course, eat them in moderation, but definitely eat them!
