Method

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper Cream together butter, eggs and sugar. Add 2 tbsps. of water and blend in.
  2. Add flour and baking soda and mix well. Add oatmeal x 1cup at a time and mix in well. Finally stir in m & m's, or other ingredients such as nuts and seeds.
  3. Using a teaspoon drop mounds of the mixture onto the lined cookie sheets and bake for 7-10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Cookies will store in an airtight tin for up to a week.

Why Parchment Paper?

Baking on Parchment paper, rather than using fat or spray, offers a healthier baking option, plus the parchment is reusable for other cookie baking. Baking on parchment also prevents the risk of over cooking the base of the cookies or burning from too much grease on the cookie sheet. Some pre-sprayed or treated sheets have been shown to have risks to your health.

      Oatmeal cookies are one of my favorites, especially if they have some chocolate as this recipe shows. It looks simple to make so I will be adding this to my grocery list.
