The Great Cookie Experiment- Oatmeal Cookies

The Great Cookie Experiment- Oatmeal cookies

 

There is nothing better than an Oatmeal cookie……unless it’s a non-fat good for you Oatmeal cookie.  This is not the first fat-free type cookie that I have reviewed.  A lot of my friends thought I shouldn’t even try baking it thanks to the previous attempts.  How could I not try it, though?  Each new low-fat, non-fat, supposedly healthy cookie recipe could be the magic one that gives you a fabulous taste and texture and you never ever have to feel guilty eating them.

 

I should have listened to my friends and skipped making this one.  Take a handful of dry oatmeal.  Moisten it with a drop or two of water, and sprinkle it with a pinch of brown sugar, then eat it.  It will taste kind of wholesomelike the way grains are supposed to, but it will be dry and chewy with a little bit of sweet.  That’s pretty much these cookies in a nutshell.  I will say that these are very easy to make.  You don’t have to cream the butter and the sugars together, you just add the ingredients, and mix- easy!  If you like chewing on slightly moist oats, then by all means enjoy making these.  I’m going to go find an Oatmeal cookie recipe that uses butter…..
