A sign that Bug is getting better in the kitchen- she made these aggression cookies almost all by herself with the "smashing" help of Monkey! Of course I helped with some of the measuring and oven and other tough jobs. If you like the "crisp" part better than the "fruit" part of a fruit crisp, you will definitely like these crunchy cookies.
1 cup brown sugar
2 cup oatmeal
1 cup flour
2/3 cup butter, softened
2 tsp. baking soda
*Mix everthing together and smash, smash, smash!- with your hands of course, thats what makes this such a great recipe for kids!
*add a little water if the dough doesnt seem to be coming together well, like ours.
*When you are done playing, err...smashing, form the dough into balls and bake at 350 degrees for about 12 min.
