Making Cookies

Hand Cookies

- Made from time to time during Adventures in Pioneer Living

Wash your hands very well before beginning!

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  • Combine in a large bowl:
    • 3/4 cup soft butter or margerine
    • 3/4 cup brown sugar
    • 1 cup of flour (white, whole wheat or a combination)
    • 1 1/2 cup uncooked rolled oats
    • 3/4 teaspoon of Baking Soda
  • Using your clean hands, mash and squish the dough until it is well mixed
  • form the dough into 1 - 2 inch balls. Roll in cinnamon-sugar, if desired
  • Place on ungreased cookie sheet and flatten with your hand
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes, until just lightly browned
  • Let cool a few minutes, then enjoy while still warm!

Dont' forget that cleaning up is part of cooking!
