Instant Oatmeal cookies

I made these cookies today out of instant oatmeal packages I had in the cupboard. I bought a huge box of Instant Oatmeal for Rowan but alas she hates the texture.

So why not! They're delicious! (I'm chowing on one now)

(I added a couple boxes of raisins as well as a dash of cinnamon)

1/4 c white sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 c butter, softened
1 tbsp milk
1 egg
6 packets flavored instant oatmeal
1 c flour
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients except flour and oatmeal packets. Stir in flour and oatmeal packets. (The mixture will be sticky due to the milk. If you prefer crisp cookies to chewy ones, eliminate the milk. If you like your cookies chewy and cakey, add an extra tablespoon of milk.)

Roll dough into 1 1/2" balls and drop onto an ungreased cookie sheet, about 2" apart. Smash the balls down to a thickness of about half an inch.

Bake until light brown, about ten minutes. Allow to cool on cookie sheet briefly, then remove to a rack to finish cooling.

I'll have to try these! I bought a big BJ's box and none of mine will eat it - same thing texture!
