These cookies are astonishing because they turn out – well nothing like you think they will. I love this recipe – it is quick easy and very impressive! Great big Giant Cookies!
It is especially great when you need to bake and you have nearly no flour in the house – I can’t help you if you don’t have castor sugar and butter either!
Meet the Players:
- 75 g butter
- 75 g oats
- 100 g castor sugar
- 1 egg beaten
- 2 teaspoons of flour
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
Let’s Play the Game:
Gently melt the butter in a pot.
Once it has melted put the oats into the pot and stir them through the butter.
Stir the sugar through the mixture and leave the mixture to stand for a minute or two, so that the oats can absorb the butter.
Now mix the beaten egg through the mixture and then add in your flour and baking powder.
This step is where you are required to follow the rules! Place six heaped teaspoons on a large baking tray and pop them in the oven until they are golden brown – about 8 minutes at 180 degree Celsius. (Don’t think you can fit more onto the tray!)
Don’t move them… they will conk and break up! Let them cool on the tray for about five minutes before you carefully place them on a cooling rack to finish cooling, and you can carry on baking the next batch.
Yum, yum you are done.
