Oat cookies

These cookies taste like a cross between flapjacks and shortbread, everyone seems to love them. I have heard that dribling chocolate over them while they are still warm is also very nice.

Recipe makes approximately 2 dozen cookies.


  • 245g (8oz) rolled oats
  • 125g (4oz) plain (all-purpose) flour
  • 200g (7oz) packed brown sugar
  • 225g (7oz) butter
  • ½ tsp water


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Combine the oats, flour and brown sugar. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs and form into a ball. Either roll out to ¼ inch thick and cut with cookie cutters or press into the bottom of a baking pan.
  3. Bake at 375°F (190°C) for 12 to 15 minutes.
