Found Recipe: Oatmeal Cookies

So in my last post, I added some of my own recipes to a recipe journal I found. Now I’m going to try one of the recipes that were already in this cookbook.

I decided to try making the oatmeal cookies. This recipe must make a small batch as it only calls for 1/2 cups of flour and rolled oats. There’s also no egg, which is unusual. Maybe the person recording this recipe had an egg allergy.

I gathered my ingredients.

I combined the dry ingredients in a bowl.

The I creamed the butter, shortening (used here instead of lard,) and the sugar.

I added the dry ingredients and the boiling water with the cream mixture and stirred until just combined.

Then I added dark chocolate chips because they make cookies better.

I scooped the batter onto a lined baking sheet.

Then I baked then at 350F for 10 minutes.

Weird looking but not bad tasting.

Because of the lack of egg and the low flour content, these cookies are soft, like too soft to pick up, have to eat them with a fork soft.

If I was going to make these again, I would either tinker with the recipe to make the cookies a bit more firm, or I’d make them crumbly and serve them as a crumble topping for ice cream.
