My box of Mornflake Oatmeal had a cookie recipe on it that I modified a bit and decided to share. It is fairly easy, and the trial run was not bad at all.
Mixing Bowl or Mixer
Dry Measure cups
Wax or parchment paper
1.5 cups room temperature butter
.5 cup light brown sugar
.33 cup dark brown sugar
1t baking soda
1.5 cups all-purpose flour
3 cups oats/oatflakes/oatmeal/whatever you call it
large pinch salt
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream the butter and sugar, then add in egg and vanilla. Sift together flour and soda, then add salt and spices. Fold into the creamed mixture and mix well. Sir in oats and mix well. Place wax or parchment paper on cookie sheet (or grease sheet if you like), then put mixture on sheet by rounded tablespoons on sheet. The original directions said to bake for 8-10 minutes, but I suggest start checking at 8 and keep an eye on them. The less baking time, the chewier the cookie, the longer the crisper. Mine may have been a little larger than normal, so that did affect my cooking time. Let cookies cool completely, then store in a covered container like a cookie jar. Enjoy.
