Orange Oatmeal Cookies
Gabe & I spent a few days visiting his parents in Canada. I always bake cookies for them.
Last year I forget to take a photo of the cookies but HERE they are enjoying Carol's A-Z Cookies I made in 2013.
They really loved these! She told me the next time we visit to bring more!
The cookies are not sweet and have a light orange flavor.
This cookbook is from the Lake City Library. It was published in 1985.
1 cup packed light-brown sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine ( I used butter)
1 1/2 teaspoons grated orange peel
1/4 cup orange juice ( used orange juice with pulp)
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 cups regular or quick-cooking rolled oats
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In the large bowl of a mixer, cream butter or margarine and sugar until fluffy.
Beat in egg, orange peel and juice.
Gradually beat in flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and nutmeg until mixed.
Stir in oats.
Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls about 2 1/2 inches apart on greased cookie sheets.
Bake for 12 to 14 minutes
