Oatmeal Refrigerator Cookies

Oatmeal Refrigerator Cookies

As a working mother, I try to make refrigerator cookies. I make the dough, freeze it in logs, wrapped in parchment paper, tin foil and then put them in a zip lock bag.  Then, I bake them when I have time later, as needed.


1 c oil

1 c sugar

1 c brown sugar

2 eggs

1 t vanilla

1 ½ c flour

1 t baking soda

¼ t salt

½ t cinnamon

3 c rolled oats

½ c chopped pecans

Instructions for food processor:

Cream together oil, sugars, and then add eggs, and vanilla. Add the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon and pulse the food processor until just blended.  Stir in rolled oats and pecans (if using).  Shape the dough into rolls, and wrap in wax paper. Refrigerate until firm or freeze until ready to bake.

To bake:

Bake in preheated 3500F oven.  Slice dough ¼ inches and arrange on cookie sheets, lined with parchment paper. Bake 9-10 minutes until lightly browned. Cool on wire racks.  These freeze well.

Yield: about 5 dozen cookies.
