Just add honey

There’s something about the words “honey” and “oatmeal” that make a cookie seem healthy. And since honey is technically a natural sweetener, this feels like a virtuous treat. We like to use organic ingredients as further healthful justification.
Bake a batch, do your best to wait for them to cool, then pair with your favorite herbal tea and a drizzle of local honey. Stack extras in a colorful food tin or Mason jar for that country-mart charm.

It also helps if you decant your honey into a pretty vintage jar. It might not really taste better, but it sure feels homey.

Organic Oatmeal Biscuits
  • 1½ sticks soft unsalted butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 cup sifted flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 3 cups uncooked oatmeal
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Beat butter, sugar, egg, water and vanilla together until well mixed.
  3. Sift flour, salt and baking soda together and add to the above.
  4. Stir in oatmeal.
  5. Refrigerate overnight, if possible.
  6. Dollop teaspoonfuls on lightly greased baking sheet.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  8. Let cool thoroughly or store in freezer for a crisper texture.
  9. Drizzle with local honey of your choice.

Our Tip

Refrigerating overnight is not mandatory, but will result in a richer tasting cookie.

Our Tip

Invest in good vanilla. In simple recipes, it makes all the difference. We like Nielsen-Massey.
