Author/Submitted by: Guy Middleton University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ont.
quick or instant oats
brown sugar (packed)
1. Mix oats and brown sugar, mix in butter and vanilla.
2. Divide mixture evenly in 2 ungreased 20-cm square pans, spread evenly. Bake at 190 C for about 10 minutes or until it looks golden-brown. Squares will be soft, but will harden when cool.
3. Allow to cool for 5 minutes, then mark in squares with a sharp knife. Loosen edges and allow to cool before removing from pans.
The easiest cookies (actually cookie-like objects) to make. My mother makes these, I don't know where the recipe is from.
Difficulty : easy.
Precision : approximate measurement OK.
