Yes, my dearly beloved called these addictive. I am afraid that means I'll have to make them again, possibly this weekend, despite my aversion to making cookies.
These were adapted from the red plaid cookbook, and made to be cholesterol free, but I'll put in parenthesis how to make them full fat and undoubtedly just as tasty, in case cholesterol matters not a whit to you, as it didn't to me just a few short months ago!
ADDICTIVE OATMEAL COOKIES
3/4 cup (1-1/2 stick) margarine (or butter)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1-3/4 cups flour
2 cups rolled oats (quick or regular)
1/4 cup egg beaters (or 1 egg)
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground cloves
Cream the margarine with the brown sugar. Add the white sugar, 1 cup flour and 1 cup oats, and beat until combined. Add all of the remaining ingredients, and beat until combined - the dough will be very stiff. Drop by teaspoonsful onto prepared baking sheets (I line mine with waxed paper, then spread a few drops of oil on the paper, and cleanup is a breeze). Bake at 375F for 10 to 12 minutes in a conventional oven, or 350F for 8 to 10 minutes in a convection oven. Makes about 4 dozen (46, to be exact).
There were 7 cookies left this morning, out of that 46, and my dearly beloved happily snagged them for his breakfast. I think that's a testimonial as to how addictive he found them!
It's supposed to rain all weekend, so I'll be happily hibernating. Hope you all have a great weekend!
