Oatmeal Crisps

The weather has turned and it has become very windy with little rains. You feel very lazy and want to take long walks and do little else. And me I can easily put the blame on the winds and flying clothes for not blogging. :D. But no, I feel like fighting against it atleast twice a week and continue the posts and recipes. And that too easier ones like the oatmeal crisps from Martha Stewart which I found while browsing.

Butter: 2 tbsp unsalted and soft

Sugar: 1.5 tbsp heaped
All Purpose Flour: 1 tbsp
Vanilla Extract: 1/2 tsp
Salt: 1/8 tsp (adjust if using salted butter)

Oats: 1/3 cup


I a medium bowl mix together butter with sugar,flour,salt and vanilla. Fold in oats and bring together to form a sticky mass. 
Scoop packed teaspoon sized pieces and drop on a lined baking sheet 1-2 inches apart. You will get around 12-14 pieces.

Bake in a preheated oven at 350F/175C for about 12-14 minutes till the edges stat to brown. Take out and let them cool completely on the pan. While taking out you can see that the centre is not set and still bubbling. But once cooled, they will be set and the cookies will turn crispy and crunchy.

These are crunchy and crispy as the name says and completely eggless.They were perfect for tea and my daughter loved these more. For me, they were not too sweet,just correct sweetness only. Maybe you can use brown sugar next time and try these.

This time few remaining ones are off to CookieMela at Srivalli's which is open the whole of july.So pitch in.
