Lemon and oatmeal. While these probably aren't the first choices you'd think of for an amazing flavor combination, believe it or not, this dynamic duo is actually quite tasty together.
No, we're not talking about a bowl of lemon-flavored oatmeal in the morning. We're not sure how that would turn out, but we'd rather not find out. We're talking about a delicious, chewy, mouth watering cookie that brings together these two ingredients in a way you never imagined before.
Using our simple, versatile, and oh so amazing quick rolled oats, along with some help from natures sour-flavored fruit, we've baked up the perfect lemon cookie recipe that is sure to be a huge hit in your home. Grab your favorite baking apron, it's time to whip up some Lemon Oatmeal Sugar Cookies!
1 cup Butter, softened
2 cups Sugar
Zest from 1 Lemon
Juice from 1 Lemon
2 3/4 cup Honeyville Alta Artisan Flour
1 cup Honeyville Quick Rolled Oats
2 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Himalayan Salt
Yields: 4 dozen cookies
First, prepare your dough.
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, lemon zest, and lemon juice until completely combined.
In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, oats, baking powder, and salt. Combine dry ingredients with wet ingredients and mix until a thick dough forms. Cover and place in refrigerator for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Once dough has chilled, remove and drop Tablespoon size dough balls on to your USA Pan Baking Sheet, lined with parchment paper.
Bake at 375 degrees for 6-8 minutes. Remove when lightly brown, and let cool on a wire rack before serving.
Rich, chewy, and with a lemon flavor that can't be beat, these cookies have all the taste and texture you've been dreaming of! Our quick oats give the added chewiness you love in oatmeal cookies, but the lemon leaves you thinking you're enjoying a fancy sugar cookie. Either way, your stomach is left satisfied!
Lemon and oatmeal are the perfect combination you never knew you were missing. Thanks to this cookie recipe, you'll never have to!
