OATMEAL & NUTS COOKIES

Photobucket

One of the tastiest cookies I ever baked. It uses oat and chocolate chip but use almond instead since that was in hand.

The dough is quite easy to handle, but must place the cookies apart since it will expand when baking. Apart from chocolate chips, nuts and dried fruits are the best alternative.

After baking, let them sit in the baking sheet for 5 minutes since it is still soft and fragile. Transfer into wire rack to cool. My family love them so much, will definitely bake them often.

INGREDIENTS:

1 c all purpose flour
1/2 c butter/shortening
1 c oatmeal (rolled type)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 c chocolate chip/nuts/dried fruit
1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 c white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1 tbsp water/milk
METHOD:

Cream butter and sugar until light. Add the egg, one tablespoon of liquid and vanilla.

Now gradually add the dry ingredient to the butter mixture. Mix just well blended. Mix in chocolate chip.

Preheat oven @ 350F, lightly grease the baking sheet. Place tablespoons of batter and flatten with a fork. Leave space between the cookies as they will expand when baking.

Bake for 11 minutes. Remove from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes before placing them on wire rack to cool.

Store in an airtight container when completely cool.
