yield: 2 dozen
Ingredients:2/3 cup butter
2/3 cup shortening
1 cup brown sugar
3 cups rolled oats
1 cup all purpose or whole wheat flour
1 cup oat flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup water
Instructions:1. Preheat the oven to 350'F. In a mixing bowl or the bowl a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together butter, shortening and brown sugar.
2. Add all remaining ingredients and mix on low speed until mixture forms a dough like mixture.
3. Scoop heaping tablespoons and place on parchment lined baking trays. Using your fingers as a spatula press each cookie down to flatten slightly. They don't spread so you want to press them into the size and shape you desire. The thinner you press them, the crisper they will be. Bake for 18 minutes or until lightly golden and crispy. If you have a convection option on your oven, this is the time to use it!
