A nice, light, satisfying Oatmeal Cookie---very quick and easy to make:

I've been experimenting with cookie recipes that don't deliver such a whopping dose of fat and sugar. This is basically a standard cornbread recipe, adjusted for Oatmeal Cookies by substituting oats for cornmeal.

---Mix together
1/2 cup old fashioned oatmeal, uncooked
1/2 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
pinch salt
2 Tbsp sugar (more or less, according to desired sweetness)
---Mash in
1/2 inch cut from a stick of butter (a Tbsp or so of oil will work, too)
---Stir in
One egg
Enough milk to make a thick batter
(Add raisins or cut-up dried fruit if desired)

Drop batter onto greased cookie sheet
Bake 15 minutes at 450.

Thanks for posting this. I'm not a baker -- in fact, I'm not even much of a cook -- but I do like cookies! These look like cookies that even *I* can bake, because there's no fancy-shmancy mixer that's required, which I don't happen to have.

And I suppose that I could even add chocolate chips to them.

Here goes the easiest - yet very delicious - recipe for amaretti (little bitter ones) cookies (there are many variations for this recipe but this is the simplest one I know):

1 c ground almonds
1 c sugar
2 to 3 large egg whites (depends on eggs size)
pinch cream of tartar

Beat egg whites and cream of tartar to stiff peaks. Fold in sugar and almonds. Bake at 300F for about 30 minutes.
