Soft oatmeal drop cookies you can feel good about giving your kids, and they still taste like cookies. We are making them while we have a They Might be Giant dance party.
Ingredients: Organic is best.
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup raisins
1 cup chopped unsulphured apricots
1 tablespoon Bourbon Vanilla ( or regular)
1 cup softened butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 tablespoon cinnamon
2 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups oats
In small bowl combine eggs, dried fruit and vanilla. Cover and chill 1 hour to plump fruit.
Oven to 350.
In medium bowl cream butter, sugar, cinnamon.
Separate bowl for mixing flour and baking soda. Add dry to wet and mix well. Next stir in egg/fruit mix and then oats. Will be stiff, use your muscles.
Drop with teaspoon onto parchment lined pan.
10-14 minutes until slightly golden.
Just finished my fourth while writing this. Tomorrow it’s all about salad. 😉
Update: this recipe makes such a large batch, I’ve taken to rolling 2/3 of it in sheets of parchment and freezing it.
