1/3 c Butter (margarine)
1/3 c Lightly packed brown sugar
1/4 c Warm water
1 c Flour, divided
1/4 cup aside
1 c Quick rolled oats
1 ts Cinnamon
1/2 ts Baking soda
Cream butter and sugar together thoroughly, then beat in water. Set aside 1/4 cup flour for rolling. Mix together the
remaining dry ingredients, then stir them into the creamed mixture. Add the remaining flour gradually to the dough until it
is stiff enough to roll.
Divide the dough into 3 lumps about the same size. Roll each lump of dough out about 1/8 inch thick and cut into 12 pieces
or use cookie cutter. Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 F about 10 minutes or until golden brown around
the edges. Remove from pan, cool. Store in a covered container. Makes about 36 cookies.
