Oatmeal Cookies

Oatmeal cookies are a great staple - these ones are lovely, soft and tasty.  (Of course I add chocolate chips rather than raisins.)

Recipe adapted from: Chewy Gooey Crispy Crunchy Melt-In-Your-Mouth Cookies by Alice Medrich
190g rolled oats
62.5mL water
225g butter
150g brown sugar
100g white sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
160g flour
1/2 tsp bicarb soda
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
100g walnuts
130g choc chips (or raisins, if you're that way inclined)

1. Combine the oats with the water in a bowl, and let them soak.

2. Melt the butter in the microwave, then stir in the brown sugar, white sugar, vanilla and salt.

3. Add the egg and stir until combined.

4. Add the flour, bicarb, cinnamon and nutmeg and stir until just combined.

5. Chop the walnuts roughly.

6. Add the walnuts, choc chips and soaked oats, fold them into the dough.

7. Let the dough rest in the fridge for about an hour or more/overnight.

8. When you're ready to bake the cookies, preheat your oven to 175 C (350 F).

9. Shape rough tablespoon amounts of dough and place them spread out on a baking tray covered with baking paper/silicon mats.

10. Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes, until golden on top.  These ones tend to spread out a little but not heaps!

11. Let the cookies cool for a bit then transfer onto a wire rack to cool completely.
