While creating yesterday’s blog, I found the most perfect recipe in More-with-Less!
“Oatmeal cookies with a purpose”
Today, I am going to share with you that recipe. The recipe makes 5-6 dozen cookies.
First preheat your oven to 325.
Begin by creaming together:
- 1 c. margarine or shortening
- 1 c. brown sugar
- 2 c. rolled oats
- 1 c. dry milk solids
- 1/2 c. water
In a separate bowl sift together:
- 2 1/4 c. flour
- 3 t. baking powder
- 1 t. salt
Then, combine the two mixtures and mix well. Roll the dough into 1/4″ thickness. Place the cookies onto a baking pan and put into the oven. Then, 10-15 minutes later your cookies will be ready to come out, your house will be filled with wonderful smells, and your stomach will be rumbling.
More-with-Less actually adds a bit of fun to the recipe by giving instructions on how children can participate and make animal cookies! I decided to keep the recipe a bit shorter for our reader’s sake, however, you should really check out the fun recipe. You (and the kids!) will love it.
More-with-Less promises this end result:
