Directions

1. Preheat oven to medium. If using walnuts, chop and set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, cream butter and sugars.

3. Add egg, vanilla and milk and beat well.

4. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon on top of the wet ingredients. Gently blend dry ingredients, then mix them into the wet ingredients.

5. Add oats, walnuts (if using) and raisins – mix well. Dough should be quite stiff.

6. Grease 1-2 cookie sheets. If dough is stiff enough, make small balls and arrange them on the cookie sheets 2 inches apart. If the dough is too sticky, use a spoon to make small dollops of dough a bit more than 2 inches apart.

7. Bake until cookies no longer look wet on top (turn down the oven if they are burning on the bottom) approximately 10-15 minutes.

8. Cool cookies on a clean paper bag or clean sheets of newspaper (this will absorb excess grease).

                                                              

Notes: Oatmeal cookies are a nice American stand-by that Romanians seem to love. If you’re cooking for a large group, you may want to double the recipe. 

 

Variations: This recipe makes thick chewy cookies. If you like thin cookies use 2 eggs. You can replace the raisins with any dried fruit, or with chopped apple. Any sort of nut or seed is also good – or you can omit these. You can also bump up the spice level with up to 1 tsp cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice etc.

 

Substitutions: Brown sugar/White sugar.
