I'm making these Halloween Cookies today for a few events. I found this vintage recipe in my wife's recipe card file. You know, the old fashioned wooden box with either hand written 5" X 7" cards or recipes glued to the card.
I find all of these recipes fascinating. They are the recipes of my Aunt Faye that inspired me to create this blog.
Halloween Oatmeal Cookies:
1 C ( 2 sticks) butter, softened
1 C granulated sugar
1 C brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla
3 C Quick or Old Fashioned Oats
2 C flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 C Rice Krispies Cereal
1 C M&M's ( I used Pumpkin flavored)
1 C chopped pecans
Halloween Candy Corn (those little white, orange and yellow triangle candies).
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Line cookie sheet pans with parchment paper
In a stand mixer:
Beat until creamy
In a bowl:
Mix Well and add to to wet ingredients.
By Hand, fold in:
Use a 1 1/2 " cookie scoop.
Place cookies 2" apart
Bake for 12 - 15 minutes.
Immediately after removing from the oven press 2 - 3 pieces of Candy Corn onto the tops of each cookie.
Leave them on the cookie sheet to cool for 1 minute before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
