Of all the Cookies I make these are simple but always good. Enjoy!!!!
¾ cups unsalted butter softened Mix together
2 cups C&H brown sugar
½ tsp soda
½ tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1-cup flour (I like Gold medal Organic Flour best)
3 cups Snoqualmie Falls Oatmeal (a thick cut oat) – uncooked
Add ingredients together and mix well
The original recipe calls for ¼ cup water; depending on the size of the egg sometimes you need it. The dough will be fairly firm.
Place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper press down slightly till about ¾ thick. Bake what you can eat that day and freeze the remaining unbaked dough following all the above instructions, I freeze mine unbaked in balls pressed down and ready to go in the oven. They will stay fresh for about 2 months if well wrapped. To cook remove from freezer, I cook from frozen but you can thaw them if you wish
These are a great plain cookie with the bit of caramel flavor that comes from the use of all brown sugar and no spices. You can add 1 cup raisins or dried fruit, ½ cups pecans or other nuts, coconut, chocolate somewhat covers the oaty flavor of the cookie but if you are a chocoholic by all means add it.
Bake at 375 till done on edges and not shiny in center.
