These Crispy Oatmeal Cookies are one of my childhood favorite cookies!!
I still love them for their light innocent look and the way they brake when you take a bite – but I love them even more, when they are dipped in chocolate and put together as a sandwich!!
– Only problem – They disappear too fast, so I always regret I didn’t make a double portion.
The dough is super easy to make and to work with, which makes it an excellent cookie for kids to make/bake by themself.
(Just remember to teach THEM to make a double portion, please!! 😋)
Crispy Oatmeal Cookies
3/4 stick of butter
1 cup Oats
1 teaspoon Vanilla Bean Paste
1/3 + 1/4 cup Sugar
1 tablespoon Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
(1 cup of chocolate chips – if you are in the mood for the crispy-oatmeal-chocolate-dipped-cookie-sandwich!)
Melt the butter.
Add the oats and let it stay and soak for about 15 minutes.
Mix egg, sugar and vanilla until white, light and fluffy.
Add flour and Baking Powder.
On a baking sheet with Baking Parchment put a teaspoonful! of the dough with plenty of space in-between. Maximum 8-9 cookies per sheet! I doesn’t look like much, but just wait and see!!
Bake for 8-10 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Cool down completely and store in an airtight container OR dip in melted chocolate and THEN store in an airtight container.
again, and again, and again, and….
