Cream together: 1 stick of butter, 1 egg, 3/4 cup sugar
Add cap of vanilla
(1/2 teaspoon vanilla)
Mix the dry ingredients with the cream, sugar, egg.
This mixture is interesting. It starts out a lighter color, and then as you mix it more and I assume the cocoa dissolves a bit, the color gets darker....
Lastly, you add
1 and 1/4 cup of dry oatmeal.
I have used quick oats and old fashioned (bigger cut) and both work fine. I have also made these cookies with chopped walnuts, and LOVE 'em like that!
