Swedish Oatmeal Cookies

This is from the Hannah Swensen Mystery Series Key Lime Pie.  It sounds like a great way to add oats to my diet.  Add some chocolate chips for a kick.  :)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F., rack in middle position. 

1 cup butter (2 sticks, ½ pound) 
¾ cup white (granulated) sugar 
1 teaspoon baking soda 
1 cup flour (no need to sift) 
2 cups oatmeal (I used Quaker Oats— Quick) 
1 egg yolk


Melt the butter in a microwave safe bowl on HIGH for approximately 1 ½ minutes. 
Let it cool to room temperature. 
Mix in the white sugar. 
Add the baking soda, flour, and oatmeal. 
Stir thoroughly. 
Beat the egg yolk with a fork until it’s thoroughly mixed. 
Add it to the bowl and stir until it’s incorporated. 
Grease (or spray with Pam or other nonstick cooking spray) a standard-sized cookie sheet. 
Make small balls of dough and place them on the cookie sheet, 12 to a sheet. 
Press them down with a fork in a crisscross pattern the way you’d do for peanut butter cookies. 
Bake at 350 degrees F. for 10 to 12 minutes or until they’re just starting to brown around the edges. 
Let the cookies cool for a minute or two on the sheets and then transfer them to a wire rack to complete cooling. 
Yield: approximately 5 dozen, depending on cookie size.
