Oatmeal Cookie Mix

My mom used to buy those packaged oatmeal cookies when we were kids, those kind that came in those little packets of 2. This week I wanted something simple with a similar taste so I decided to mix it up in the kitchen...

Oatmeal cookie mix (single use)

1 1/2 cups quick oats
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Big batch

5 cups quick oats
4 cups flour
4 cups sugar
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon

It's important that you use quick oats- regular oats will give the cookies that dry, cardboard taste but quick oats make for a smoother cookie like those you can buy.

What else you'll need

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 egg (or substitute)
1 teaspoon vanilla

Blend butter, egg and vanilla and then stir in 3 1/4 cups of mix.

Roll dough into balls and flatten with a fork on a cookie sheet.

Bake for approx 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees.

Oh... Wow! These were good. So good that after I had eaten one and gone upstairs to put the baby down for a nap they were all gone when I got back downstairs 2 minutes later. I guess I'll be making more....
