So easy kids can make them with minimal supervision. The high butter content makes them crispy like shortbread instead of soft like a traditional oatmeal cookie. Made with instant oatmeal packets, they can be mushed together with your hands and plopped onto the baking sheet. They’re supposed to be pale in color, so pull them out before they brown too much.
Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal Short Cookies
3 packets instant maple brown sugar oatmeal
1/3 cup flour
1 stick butter, softened
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Mush all three ingredients together with a spoon or your hands. Roll into 12 small balls and place on cookie sheet. Flatten each ball slightly. Bake for 12-15 minutes and take out before they start to brown.
Makes 12 cookies.
