  • Equal parts sugar and fat (butter, for preference but if you have to lard is fine. Shortening is not food, so we will not discuss it). Equal parts flour and oatmeal, totaling about double the amount of sugar and fat (added together). 1 tsp of baking powder per cup of flour. Salt if you think it adds flavour --1/2 tsp. An egg for every cup of flour, if you want chewy cookies, not if you don't. A tsp of vanilla because it's a good idea. Cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, Chinese 5 spice, mace and/or ground coriander seed (totaling 1.5 tsp per cup of flour) Add chocolate chips or raisins once everything else is mixed --about as much as fat.

    Cream the fats. Combine the dry stuff, and in a separate bowl combine the wet stuff. Stir the dry into the fat/sugar first, then stir in the wet stuff. Toss the chips or raisins in last, drop by teaspoons onto ungreased sheets and bake @ 375 for about 10 minutes, less for chewy, more for crispy.
