Another baking quickie

The cold has continued and so has the baking. Here’s my new favourite fast oatmeal cookie recipe. It’s from the book Maida Heatter’s Cookies that my godmother gave me when I moved out from home many years ago. Okay, seven. The pinwheels on the cover are easy and awesome, too. They make a great gift because they’re so good looking people think you spent a ton of time on them.
Anyway, these super easy and very tasty.

Oatmeal Snickerdoodles.
2 c. all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
8 oz. butter
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 c. sugar
3/4 c. packed light brown sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 c. old fashioned oats

Sift together dry ingredients. Cream butter, sugars and vanilla. Add eggs one at a time. Gradually add dry ingredients. Stir in Oats. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheets. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Bake at 400 degrees F 10-12 minutes.

Try to wait long enough to not burn the roof of your mouth.

And another one to show off the wonderful platter from my last thrifting trip.
