Brainstorming cookies


I call them that because the reason to make them was a brainstorming at work. Due to some constraints we were having it @9am and I thought that some sugar kick could help release the creativity. And it did, indeed! If you too have a reason to bake (or really, who needs a reason to have some good cookies), here is my recipe.

Ingredients (made around 50 thin cookies):

  • 225 grams softened (I usually melt) butter
  • 200g white sugar
  • 220g brown sugar
  • 5ml vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 250g flour
  • 5g baking soda
  • 6g salt
  • 3g cinnamon powder
  • 245g quick cooking oats

Step by step:

  1. mix together butter and both sugars until you have a soft dough. integrate eggs, then vanilla.
  2. in a separate bowl mix together the dry ingredients, except oats, and then add them to the butter mixture. combine well.
  3. add the oats, mix thoroughly  and let it set for 1h in the fridge
  4. line cooking pans with baking paper and heat oven to 190C
  5. take a small piece of the dough and form small balls (walnut size), sit them on the pans, approximately 5cm apart. This is important as the cookies will expand while cooking.
  6. take a fork and push on each of the balls, forming a cookie
  7. bake for 10 minutes and allow cookies to cool before removing/eating them

There you go. Great cookies for any occasion. I know I will be making them again!
