Today “instead” of math Mom and me made kitchen scrap cookies. Here is a recipe:
- 1/2 cup butter
- 3/4 c. brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 c. cold cooked oatmeal
- 1-1/4 c. flour (using 1 cup WW pastry flour makes a crisper cookie)
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. bkg. soda
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 tsp. vanilla
Up to 1 additional cup uncooked oats, rolled or steel cut,
Add at least 1 cup of kitchen scraps like:
- Cup cakes
- Oat meal (with raisins and/or apples optional)
Cream butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla. Lightly sprinkle flour, salt, soda, and cinnamon. Add to wet ingredients. Mix batter with cooked oatmeal and add-in’s. The finished batter should have a semi-stiff consistency, or stay rounded as you drop the teaspoons on the sheet.
Bake at 350* 12-15 minutes on a very lightly greased cookie sheet until the edges are brown.
These could sound very weird but once you take a bite the first one you won’t stop!
Now I have to take some cookies out of the oven!
