I had approximately 2 cups of Rolled Oats left over!I had got the best Oats some 5 months back and enjoyed a delicious porridge with honey and fresh fruits many times for breakfast.Unfortunately the jar of Oats stood near a newly bought jar of Coffee once overnight and then the better half would not have them as he complained of a â€œpeculiar smellâ€ in the porridge.I could well discern a slight aroma of Coffee but it is a tradition if he does not like something,it would be lying untouched till I did not do something about it!
I hammered my head on many options before opting for a crispy cookie.As a rule my better half does not like chewy cookies while he prefers the crispy ones.However these cookies are delicious chewy and crispy â€“ both ways.He bit into one and fell in love with it!He calls himself a food critic and hearing praises of anything means it is really delicious!I referred the recipe from Melâ€™s Kitchen Cafe and adapted the recipe to suit my needs â€“ the result was a super tasty and wow cookie which was enjoyed dunked in cold milk flavoured with butterscotch essence!
The link for the referred recipe :
You can flavour the milk with any essence you want or just have it plain!The first batch of cookies came out chewy and the second batch made thinner than the first came out crispy!Really really delicious!
100gms - 1 cup unsalted butter â€“ if you use salted then omit the salt in the recipe
1egg - at room temperature
1/2cupgranulated white sugar
Preheat oven to 170°C.Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and keep aside.
Mix the flour,baking soda and salt (if using) in a bowl.
Add butter and both sugars and beat with an electric mixer till well combined.Add the egg and beat again for approximately 1 minute.Add the flour mix and fold with a spatula till well mixed into the egg mixture.
Now add the Oats and fold again till well amalgamated.
Shape into small balls and put 8 per batch on the parchment paper.If you want chewy cookies leave them as it is.With the heat they will collapse and turn into delicious chewy morsels!
If you want crispy cookies press them gently with the back of a small soup bowl or ladle.
Bake for 16 Ã¢â¬â 18 minutes per batch till golden brown on the sides.Serve with milk for a memorable snack!
I made the cookies with rolled Oats. Do not go for the quick cooking instant Oats as you will not get the same rugged and rustic texture like these cookies.You can add extra ingredients like Choco Chips, Broken candies, chopped caramels or raisins for mouthwatering flavours!
I am a passionate foodie who loves to cook, serve and love to see people relishing my creations. Since the time I was small I used to wonder about the 'how' of things in the kitchen.
Then when I finally ventured as an unprofessional kitchen helper for my late grand-mother (a par excellent cook in her own generation) I was fascinated by the amount of stuff you could do to a simple milk and rice to form a most yummy pudding.
Here I am sharing my recipes with a will to learn from some and educate others as well!
