Simple oatmeal cookies are always a perfect choice when I crave for something sweet but not overwhelming. They're quick to make, keep for many days and are easily portable. These are very crispy around the edges and slightly chewy in the middle with a buttery, oaty taste. Simplicity wins!
200g butter, softened
200g brown sugar
2 1/2 cup quick oats
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1) Beat the butter until light and fluffy. Add brown sugar and beat until incorporated. Add in the egg.
2) In another bowl, mix together the flour, oats, baking soda and salt.
3) Mix the dry ingredients into the butter mixture.
4) Preheat oven to 180C.
5) Form the dough into balls and flatten a little bit. Leave some space for them to spread during baking. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown around the edges and slightly soft in the middle.
