- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¾ cup quick cooking Irish oatmeal
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. This is one of those Irish cookie recipes which is made slightly in a different manner. Excluding the oatmeal, salt and flour quantities, mix the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl using an electric mixer.

Now remove the firm dough balls and place it on a baking sheet. Flatten the dough in between your palms to give it a flat round shape. Place the sheets into the oven for a bake. Bake them for about 10 minutes or until lacy-golden brown in color. Similarly, bake the rest of the dough and make sure after you remove them from the oven in the end, you allow it to cool down for a minute or two before eating. Serve and enjoy!

- ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Take small scoops of this dough and equally place it on the baking sheets about an inch apart from each other. You need to keep them at a distance because while they get baked, they tend to rise and spread out. Moving on, place the sheets into the oven and bake them for 10-15 minutes. Flip them in between so that they roast at both the ends. After a while if they are ready, remove them from the oven, spread them on the rack and sprinkle some kosher salt on top of it. Sit for them to cool for a while and serve.
