  • Oatmeal drop cookies

    ¾ cup butter
    1 cup brown sugar (packed)
    ½ cup granulated sugar
    1 egg
    ¼ cup water
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    3 cups rolled oats (oatmeal, or quick cooking oatmeal, I used regular oatmeal)
    1 cup flour
    1 teaspoon salt
    ½ teaspoon baking soda

    Optional: about 1 cup of raisins, 1 cup of chopped nuts, or 1 cup of chopped dried fruit, or 1 cup of chocolate chips. (I used chopped pecans and chocolate chips.)

    Combine butter and sugars. Mix well. Stir in egg, water, and vanilla. Mix together the oats, flour, salt and baking soda. Blend in any optional ingredients. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets.

    Bake at 350 F for about 12- 15 minutes, until lightly browned and set. Cool on wire racks. Makes about 5 dozen cookies.

  • 10 tablespoons softened sweet butter
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 egg, -- lightly beaten
    1/2 teaspoon grated orange zest
    1 teaspoon almond or vanilla extract
    3 cups rolled oatmeal -- (not instant)Lightly butter a cookie sheet. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

    Beat together the butter, sugar, egg, orange zest and almond extract. With your fingers press the oatmeal into the butter until the dough just holds together. Form the dough into tiny balls and with the tines of a fork press them down. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.

    Yield: 2 1/2 dozen

    NOTE: I add about 1/2 cup dried cranberries
