From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...I'm hosting a coffee next week and I've started to prepare some of the treats I'll be serving for the get-together. I use occasions like to test new recipes that have caught my eye, and this afternoon I made a trial batch of these oatmeal cookies to see if they pass muster. They did. These are large cookies that have soft centers and crispy edges. They are very easy to make, but I do have one caution to share with you. The cookie dough must be refrigerated for several hours before it is baked or you will have paper thin cookies that have no substance. The recipe is straight forward and the cookies are quite nice, definitely in the keeper category. Here is how they are made.

1/4 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
1) Cream butter and both sugars together in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla.
2) Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl.
3) Gradually add flour mixture to creamed mixture. Mix well. Stir in oats.
4) Refrigerate dough for at least one hour. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
