World Baking Day

PhotoGrid_1495077239850May 17 is World Baking Day. One of the simplest things to bake is a cookie. One of my favorites is Spicy Oatmeal Crisps from I have found when I make these that the dough should be refrigerated for about an hour to keep them from spreading too thin.

Spicy Oatmeal Crisps

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine:
    • 3/4 c. flour
    • 1 t. cinnamon
    • 1/2 t. baking soda
    • 1/2 t. allspice
    • 1/2 t. nutmeg
    • 1/4 t. salt
    • 1/4 t. cloves
    • 1/4 t. black pepper
  3. In a large bowl, mix together:
    • 1 c. packed brown sugar
    • 5 T. butter, softened
    • 1 t. vanilla
  4. Add large egg to butter-sugar mixture.
  5. Add flour mixture plus 1/2 c. oats.
  6. Drop by level tablespoons 2 inches apart onto lined cookie sheets. Bake for 12 minutes or until crisp. Cool on plan 2 to 3 minutes or until firm. Then cool completely on wire racks.
