In my last post, this was a recipe for disaster! But this time, the oats made it into the dough and it turned out much better. These oatmeal crisps are delicious!
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar (you can use less of each)
1 tsp vanilla
1 & 1/2 cup All Purpose Flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
3 cups quick cooking oats
1/2 cup nuts (pecans or walnuts)
optional - 1/2 cup heath bits
Mix softened butter with sugar until blended. Add eggs and vanilla, mix well. In a separate bowl, add flour, salt and baking soda and stir well. Add this flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix. To this add the oats, nuts and heath bits, fold in.
This makes a huge batch of batter and if you would like, you can take half of the batter, form it into a log shape and wrap in waxed paper. This will keep in the refrigerator or freezes well. To bake, slice this dough in slices. For current dough, if you don't want to chill it and slice it, you can spoon it onto a greased cookie and bake at 350 for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
