Montauk Sandies

Bake the oats shortly to dry them out some

Roll the dough up in parchment and refrigerate

We find refrigerator, or icebox, cookies to be handily convenient. While making another cookie recipe and the kitchen is already soiled, put together one of these doughs to bake another night.

This particular recipe we drafted to approximate one of my wives commercial favorites. Cook them from 12 to 16 minutes depending upon your preference for chewy or crisp cookies. Good Stuff!

Montauk Sandies

1 1/2 cups oats

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Slice the cold log and leave some room to spread when baking

Spread on a rack to chill

Spread the oats on a cookie sheet and toast at 300 degrees for 15 minutes stirring frequently. Allow to cool completely. Beat butter and sugars well. Add egg and vanilla, combine well. Mix flour, soda, salt, and cinnamon then add to butter mix, add cooled oats and combine well. Roll dough into manageable lengths in parchment paper or waxpaper. Chill for at least eight hours before baking. Slice into 1/4 – 3/8 inch slices and bake for 12-16 minutes at 350 degrees. Serve with chilled eggnog or hot boilo. Good Stuff!
