Here's my simple Oatmeal Cookie recipe, aka Haferflockenplätzschen, that's quick to make and can easily be altered to your tastes. It really is one of the BEST Oatmeal Cookie recipe around. As well, it's one of those easy recipes for kids to make. You just melt the butter and let them add and mix everything else. There's no mixer involved. Just get out your big bowl and big wooden spoon and let them go to it!
That's why it's such this simple oatmeal cookie recipe to include on my Quick German Recipes site!
Try adding chocolate chips, or raisins, or nuts, or M&M's. This easy oatmeal cookie recipe is such a versatile recipe and is great to have when you need some easy dessert ideas.
This used to be the recipe my Mutti would ask me to make on Saturdays, especially in the winter. The kitchen would smell so nice and the warmth from the oven made the house so cozy. The reward? Delicious oatmeal cookies for our afternoon tea.
Here's coffee and cookies being served on our deck ... that's for my hubby and me!
I loved changing what I added to the basic mix. Often it was just chocolate chips, but raisins were often on my list as well.
Let your kids (AND HUBBY) decide what to add.
They can even separate the dough into a several batches and add different things to each batch. Even some cocoa would be interesting. Change the flavoring from vanilla to almond to rum and again - a different cookie.
To finish it off, you can drizzle some glaze on top ... that's some chocolate glaze on those cookies for hubby and me!
