We had a Valentine Cookie Decorating Party and with no eggs in the dough, this is the perfect recipe for toddler helpers!
I’m so happy to find this oatmeal roll out cookie recipe, because I have a mob of cookie cutters (a herd?) and I’m not a fan of sugar cookies. The oatmeal in these gives them a nice texture.
The following recipe is tasty and as I mentioned – no eggs meaning it isn’t as worrisome if the kids eat it raw.
(From My Big Back Yard Magazine)
Heart-y No Egg Oatmeal Cookies
- 1 Cup plus 2 Tablespoons Flour (or sub gluten free)
- 1/2 Cup Rolled Oats
- 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda (I live at high altitude and used a tiny smidge less than this)
- 1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon Salt
- 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
- 4 Tablespoons Melted Butter
- 1/3 Cup Milk
Combine dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.
Add sugar, butter and milk and mix well. Form dough into a ball and refrigerate for an hour (or we made it into two disks and froze it for about 15 minutes).
Roll out dough until it’s about 1/4 inch thick.
Cut out your cookies. If you’d like to arrange them into heart animals, now is the time.
- Try hearts all in a row for a caterpillar, stacking hearts to make a cat, dog or fish, or putting the points together and making a butterfly.
Bake for 10-12 minutes. Cool before decorating.
