Oatmeal Packet Cookies

1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 Tbsp. milk
1 egg
6 packets flavored instant oatmeal
1 cup flour
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients except flour and oatmeal packets. Stir in flour and oatmeal packet. (The mixture will be sticky due to the milk. If you prefer crisp cookies to chewy ones, eliminate the milk. If you like your cookies chewy and cakey, add an extra tablespoon of milk.)
Roll dough into 1 1/2 inch balls and drop onto an ungreased cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart. Smash the balls down to a thickness of about half an inch.
Bake until light brown, about 10 minutes. Allow to cool on cookie sheet briefly, then remove to a rack to finish cooling.
Makes about 2 dozen cookies
*I used 4 packets regular flavor oatmeal and 2 of the Apple and Cinnamon packets. The cookies turned out great. I can't believe it. It's a keeper for us. It always frustrated me that everyone would eat their favorites & would'nt touch the others, now the least favorites will not go to waste.

Oh, well these are wonderful recipes all about oatmeal packet cookies. I'll find a new recipe that I learn here. However, thank you for sharing this information here.

Have you tried making sandwich cookies with these? They sound like they'd be close to the oatmeal sandwich cookies you can buy from Little Debbie with vanilla icing.

hi

No I haven't tried making sandwich cookies with them. Good idea though. If you try it let me know how it turned out & post the recipe.

This sure appealed to me. I definitely will be trying this recipe. I like the idea of using up those oatmeal packets, because we prefer the longer cooking oatmeal now.

Missibob you will have to tell me how you liked the oatmeal packet cookies when you do make them.

I made the cookies today and put some icing on them. They are pretty good, didn't spread out much so if wanting to make them into sandwiches they would need to be pressed thinner to make bigger flater cookies.
