    Recipe Introduction

    Cookies for Rookies

    If you’re kookie over cookies, these easy-to-make treats are no sweat and no threat, even for the confirmed kitchen klutz. (This was posted by Mimi Hillyer at one of the Yahoo groups I belong to.)

    List of Ingredients

    From Crazy Plates, by Janet and Greta Podleski.

    1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
    1/2 tsp. each baking and salt
    3/4 cup packed brown sugar
    1/3 cup light margarine or butter (see hint below)
    1/3 cup light peanut butter
    1/4 cup buttermilk
    1/3 cup mini chocolate chips


    From Crazy Plates, by Janet and Greta Podleski.

    Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a large cookie sheet with non-stick spray
    and set aside.

    In a medium bowl, combine flour, oats, baking soda, and salt. Set

    In another medium bowl, cream together brown sugar, margarine, peanut
    butter, and buttermilk. Add dry ingredients and stir to form a smooth
    dough. Stir in chocolate chips.

    Roll dough into 1-1/2 inch balls, and place 2 inches apart on prepared
    cookie sheet. Using a fork dipped in flour, flatten cookies to 1/4
    inch thickness. Bake for 10 minutes. Be careful not to overbake, as
    cookies will dry out.

    Remove cookies from tray immediately and cool on a wire rack. Store
    covered with plastic wrap or in an airtight container.

    Makes 30 cookies
