Don’t these look just amazing? Enjoy!
- 1 cup butter
- ¾ cup sugar
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 cup flour (no need to sift)
- 2 cups oatmeal (I used Quaker Oats – Quick)
- 1 egg yolk
- Melt butter in microwave safe bowl on HIGH for approximately 1 ½ minutes, then let it cool to room temperature. Mix in sugar.
- Add baking soda, flour, and oatmeal. Stir thoroughly.
- Beat the egg yolk with a fork until it’s thoroughly mixed. Add it to the bowl and stir until it’s incorporated.
- Grease (or spray with Pam) a standard-sized cookie sheet. Make small balls of dough and place them on the cookie sheet. Press down with fork in a criss-cross pattern the way you’d do for peanut butter cookies (the pattern won’t stay, but this flattens them)
- Bake at 350˚ for 10 to 12 minutes, or until they just start to brown around the edges. Let the cookies cool for a minute or two on the sheets and then transfer them to a wire rack to finish cooling.
