I had promised my mother-in-law
some baked cookies today.
I used the Quaker Oats Oatmeal recipe.
Thought I'd show you my new Paris egg cup.
So cute, and no it's not hard boiled.
But you do need 1 egg for the recipe.
- 1-1/4 cups (2-1/2 sticks) margarine or butter, softened
- 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 3 cups Quaker® Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
- I added some chopped chocolate & almonds (she likes them that way)
Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, beat margarine and sugars until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; beat well. Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg; mix well. Add oats; mix well.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake 8 to 9 minutes for a chewy cookie or 10 to 11 minutes for a crisp cookie. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire rack. Cool completely. Store tightly covered.
I added a little embellishment to the box.
Put the cookies on some pretty tissue and
boxed them up.
Tied them with some string.
Nothing like fresh baked cookies!
