Mmmm mmmm mmmm!! This just might be my new favorite cookie. It’s definitely the best sugar cookie I’ve ever eaten. Last week I checked in on one of my favorite blogs to visit and found this recipe complete with a yummy picture. The picture looked so good I wanted one…today I made a batch. My bloggy friend found the recipe at Jane’s Apron. I checked out her blog and enjoyed the visit.
Valentine Oatmeal Cookies
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup butter; softened
3/4 cup sugar
2 Tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup oatmeal (regular or instant)
Combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Add all but the oatmeal (I know this seems weird that you don’t cream the butter and sugar but just go with it). Mix until combined and stir in oatmeal. Roll and cut. Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes…until slightly golden on edges.
The dough was easy to work with. It rolled out easily and cut like a charm. Since there was not a frosting recipe included, I iced mine with a simple confectioner’s sugar glaze. I’m not crazy about sugar sprinkles so I omitted them. They may look pretty, but they remind me of grit. My DH and I both agree, this is a recipe for the repeat box. If you try it let us know what you think.
Until next time…
