Smashed chocolate chip oatmeal cookies

This is one of my work treats for tomorrow morning. They are oatmeal cookies with mini chocolate chips and vanilla frosting,. Lots of sugar to get work friends through a very busy Saturday at the Worldwide leader in sports – MLB playoffs (go Yankees!), college football, and the NHL (go Sabres!) Are they somewhat healthy bc they have oatmeal in them? 😋 oh, and I smudged them slightly and sprinkled them with sugar, so they are “deflated.” So should I call them “Tom Brady cookies”?😄

Cookie ingredients

  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 2 tbs water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup oats (I used quick cook)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups mini chocolate chips

Directions – cream shortening, sugar ans brown sugar. Add water and egg. Fold in dry ingredients, along with oats. Blend in chips. Spoon out ice cream scoop size of dough (about 2 tbs). Roll into balls. Slightly flatten and sprinkle w sugar. Chill a few hours or overnight in fridge. Preheat oven to 325. Stagger on a cookie sheet lined with nonstick baking liners. Bake 11 to 13 minutes. Edges will be a little golden, middle will seem doughy. Let set on sheet for 10 min. Cool completely.

Frosting ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 – 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tbs Milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla

Directions – cream butter with one cup of powdered sugar. Add milk and vanilla. Add more powdered sugar of you want frosting a little thicker. Frost cookies.

Store in covered container.
