Scumptious Oat-Rolled Cookies

These beauties are insane! I know, you're looking at them saying "a porridge cookie, really??" But they're nothing like what you would expect! As a self-proclaimed chocaholic I actually love these, sans the brown stuff. They're buttery yet crunchy, fast to make yet scrumptious, drool-inducing... ENOUGH! Make these now! :)

They're whipped up in less than twenty minutes, are a fraction healthier with the addition of oats plus, when can you go wrong with a cherry on top? ;)

Plus, I think kids would enjoy making these as there's a bit of fun to be had with the oats!

These came courtesy of Mary Berry's The Baking Bible (with a few alterations). I implore you to take time out of your weekend and enjoy these with a cup of tea! 

You will need
8oz Butter (softened)
6oz Caster Sugar
2 large Egg yolks
Few drops Vanilla Extract
10oz Self-Raising Flour 
2oz Old-fashioned Porridge Oats (on a separate plate)
12 Glacé Cherries (chopped)

  1. Preheat oven to 190degrees Celcius (fan-assisted) or 170degrees Celcius (minus the fan!)
  2. Line trays with baking parchment.
  3. Chop cherries into 3-4 pieces, whatever's easiest for you!
  4. Mix together butter, sugar, egg yolks, vanilla and flour.
  5. Form little balls out of the dough.
  6. Roll these balls in the oats until covered.
  7. Place in tray, flatten slightly and top with a piece of cherry.
  8. Bake for 20minutes or until golden.
  9. Allow to cool on trays for a few minutes before removing to wire rack.
  10. Enjoy!

Come back tomorrow for another fab cookie recipe!

Have a great Saturday and stay sweet! x
