Oatmeal "marinated" in brown sugar and vegetable oil makes for crispy edges and a chewy middle.

INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):


  • Combine oatmeal, brown sugar and oil in a bowl. Stir to mix well. Cover and let stand at least 5 hours, or overnight.
  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets - use non-stick if possible.
  • Add the egg, salt and almond extract to oatmeal and stir well until blended.
  • Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls about 1-1/2 inches apart on greased cookie sheets. Bake 7 or 8 minutes or until edges are browned and center is golden. Remove from cookie sheet and cool on racks.
