- 10 tablespoons softened sweet butter
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 1/2 teaspoon grated orange zest
- 1 teaspoon almond or vanilla extract
- 3 cups rolled oatmeal (not instant)
Lightly butter a cookie sheet. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
Beat together the butter, sugar, egg, orange zest and almond extract. With your fingers press the oatmeal into the butter until the dough just holds together. Form the dough into tiny balls and with the tines of a fork press them down. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
