I never heard of toasting oatmeal for cookies before & better still this doesn't have raisins in it. Thanks!

It's the browned butter that really makes them so good.

Boy, these sound good and I have all the ingredients on hand. I'm usually an insoniac so if I can't sleep tonight, I will make a batch for DH to take to work tomorrow. I know cops like their donuts but I'll bet they will gobble these up!
Thanks, Roselin!

You're very welcome. Hope they enjoy them-my husband told me that I couldn't give ALL of them to the little boy that came to visit last weekend.

I made the cookies last night and DH took them to work this morning to share with the boys in the squad room (he is a Police Captain).
It's official, Roselin. You can safely speed in his jurisdiction with no fear of being ticketed! LOLOL
They are a big hit!! It is really amazing what wonderful flavor is imparted by cooking the oats in butter first.
Thanks again!

RE: RECIPE: Toasted Oatmeal Cookies

Too funny after the Defensive Driving class today-you tell me I can speed in FL?? I was the only one in the class that has never had a ticket so the TX police will probably be watching me like a hawk. Ask your husband if he has any pull in the Lone Star State, will you??

But, am glad you liked the cookies.

Naw, you wouldn't-I know better. Remind me sometime and I will tell you how I DID bribe one once.
No cookies though.

Actually, Ginger, a lady posted once how she got out of a ticket by giving the officer some of my Chubby Hubby Cookies - I saved the posting! LOLOL
So apparently it works! LOLOL

Made your cookies this a.m. Great! I did goof and used 1 C butter, so added more flour...duh...next time I'll read more closely, but they were still great! Thanks for posting.

Lois,
You are welcome-glad you like them. Funny how something as simple as browning butter changes the flavor, isn't it?
Glad they turned out for you.

RE: RECIPE: Toasted Oatmeal Cookies

I love oatmeal and I love toasted anything. I am always looking for a good oatmeal cookie, they are my favorites. The pecans are a big plus! Gotta try these.

RE: RECIPE: Toasted Oatmeal Cookies

Thanks, Roselin. Our whole family likes oatmeal cookies. Here's the one I usually make when the candied fruit comes out (and no raisins). My grandmother used to make these to send to my dad and other relatives in WWII because they ship well and in a tin, they will stay moist.

TWO-WAY OATMEAL COOKIES

1 cup butter or margarine (not spread)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/ 2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 cup applesauce
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups regular rolled oats
1 1 / 2 cups flour
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/ 2 tsp. baking soda
1/ 2 tsp. baking powder
1/ 4 tsp. salt
3/ 4 cup flaked coconut
3/ 4 cup finely snipped pitted dates
1 tsp. grated orange peel
1 1/ 2 cups chopped mixed candied fruits and peels

In large bowl, cream butter and sugars thoroughly until creamy and fluffy. Add egg; mix well. Mix in applesauce and vanilla. It will look curdled but dont worry. In another bowl, mix together flour, baking soda and powder, and salt with wire whisk or sift together to mix. Stir in oats and walnuts. Stir oat-flour mixture into applesauce mixture and combine until blended. Divide dough in half. Add dates, coconut and orange peel to one portion and mix. Add candied fruit to other portion and mix. Drop teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets and bake at 350 degrees until done, about 10-15 minutes. Makes 8 to 9 dozen.

RE: RECIPE: Toasted Oatmeal Cookies

Roselin, those look good. Do you think it would work just as well if I added raisins? I know you don't like them but I really do in oatmeal cookies.


 o
RE: RECIPE: Toasted Oatmeal Cookies

Sure, Bev-go ahead and add them.

1 was interested in your recipe when I first read it but just got around to trying it.The flavor is so good!Next time I will double the recipe!Might even add chocolate chips. Gabriell

Roselin,

I made the Toasted Oatmeal Cookies today, and they are delicious! We didn't have pecans so I substituted with chopped walnuts (my personal preference anyway).

Not sure if the butter browned enough, but they definitely taste "toasty". Hubby loves them too, and he's the one I made them for since he is a fan of oatmeal cookies.

I added some chocolate chips to the last tray, but I think they are actually better without them because I think the chocolate overwhelms the toasted-oatmeal flavor a bit.

Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Guess it was just too good a recipe to fall off! LOL.
And there are some recipes here on Desserts that go back to 2002. Seems like we need to use this forum more.

Glad to hear how much you like them, Gabriell-I agree about the browned butter. Getting feedback from folks that try the recipes here really helps and contributes to baking fun.
Thanks a lot.

RE: RECIPE: Toasted Oatmeal Cookies`

Oops, meant to thank you too, Jenn and I agree-about being better with just the nuts. I do like them with the white chocolate chips too though.
Was happy to share the recipe.

RE: RECIPE: Toasted Oatmeal Cookies

I made a double batch but they were really crumbley and wouldn't hold together very well. I double check to see if I forgot to add anything during mixing. What did I do wrong? Thanks Debbie

RE: RECIPE: Toasted Oatmeal Cookies

Is this a crisp cookie or a soft cookie. I am asking because one of the doctors I work with is longing for the crisp oatmeal cookies his mother used to make. It would be so nice to be able to make some for him. All the recipes I have are soft. Thanks.


 o
RE: RECIPE: Toasted Oatmeal Cookies

They have been crispy for me.


 o
RE: RECIPE: Toasted Oatmeal Cookies

roselin, I made these cookies last night and they were delicious!! Thank you for the recipe!!

Trudymom,
Glad you liked them. Now if posie makes them and they get an approval from the boss, well, what more can one ask for? LOL

Does Irish oatmeal work for cookies?

Has anybody used Irish oatmeal for oatmeal cookies?


 o
RE: RECIPE: Toasted Oatmeal Cookies

Well, I'm sitting here eating your cookies, Roselin, and have to say thank you for a delicious new recipe. These are really delightful, crispy, great flavor and texture. They're sure to become a standard in our house. I wondered as I was shopping for ingredients what would happen with substituting regular oatmeal or as Lorna mentioned, Irish oatmeal. Have you tried other oatmeals or does the cooking in butter require the texture of the instant? I have an entire box of regular sitting in the cupboard and it looks so forlorn.

RE: RECIPE: Toasted Oatmeal Cookies

Sue, have never used the Irish oatmeal in them but I always use the regular oatmeal not the instant so do know that that works just fine. Glad you are enjoying them.
