Who stole the cookie, from the cookie jar…?
These cookies don’t stand a chance…they are buttery, crunchy and chewy – all at the same time. If you need a cookie fix, don’t go out and buy a box – make some. This recipe is super simple, requires very little time and cost is minimal. Plus, it’s prepared in a skillet – what could be better?
Recipe adapted from Better Homes and Gardens, New baking book;
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F., grease cookie sheets.
Gather your ingredients;
1 cup butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
3 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
1 1/4 cups flour (I used white wheat)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 well-beaten eggs
1/2 raisins or chopped coconut or chocolate chips (I made ours with only raisins – optional of course)
First – melt butter. once all is nearly melted, add sugars – mix.
Second – add oats, flour, baking soda + powder, salt – mix
Third – add eggs – mix
Fourth – add raisins, coconut or chocolate chips – perhaps all 3…do you dare?
Fifth – mix well
Sixth – place a tablespoon and thensome, in hand and form ball (it tends to be a ‘loose’ mix), place 2-3 inches apart onto prepared cookie sheet.
Bake for 6-12 minutes – depending on your oven – until lightly browned on bottom/edges.
Allow to set on baking sheet – roughly 3-6 minutes.
Cool completely on rack.
Store and enjoy.
Why buy boxed? Easy, inexpensive and real. It doesn’t get better…
Just for fun – the cookie jar, cookbook, baking trays, vintage spatula, and cooling rack were all picked up from my local dump. (:
