Toasted Oatmeal Cookies

On my tours of the thrift stores I have been finding some good cookbooks. The Latest one Betty Crocker's Ultimate Cookie Book has some great looking recipes in it. This one caught my attention because you toast the nuts and oatmeal. The cookie is outstanding. I will be making them again.

Toasted Oatmeal Cookies


2 1/2 cups large flake oatmeal
1 cup walnuts
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 cup softened butter
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 egg
1 cup unbleached flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt


Preheat oven to 350ยบ.
Spread oats and nuts onto a jelly roll pan (15 1/2 X 10 1/2 X 1"). Bake 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Cool.

In your mixer mix brown sugar, butter until light and smooth.
Add vanilla and egg, beat until well blended.
In small bowl whisk flour, baking soda and salt.
Stir in oat mixture and flour mixture.

Using a medium ice cream scoop, drop onto un-greased cookie sheet, 2" space between cookies.
Bake for 8 to 12 minutes until golden brown. Cool slightly and place on cooling rack.
Makes about 3 1/2 dozen.
