DATES AND OAT COOKIES

Photobucket

Another great cookies I love to bake, simply aromatic and delicious. The dough is quite sticky to handle but managed to shape it using cookie cutter if not just drop a tablespoonful onto a baking tray or shape into small ball then flatten and bake them.

INGREDIENTS

125g butter
3/4 cup chopped dates
1/2 cup water
3/4 cup sugar
1 and 1/4 cups flour
1 and 1/2 cups rolled oat
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 teaspoon baking powder

METHOD

1. Place dates, butter, water and sugar in a pot, cook until boiling, let it cool.

2. In a mixing bowl, mix together flour, oat and baking powder.

3. Pour butter mixture into dry ingredient together with vanilla essence, form into pliable dough.

4. Roll into small ball then flatten or use cookie cutter to shape.

5. Bake @ 160C for 20 minutes.

6. Cool completely before storing into airtight container.
