Oats Cookies (eggless)
This is the second time I am trying these cookies. The very first time I tried it, it was a flop. These cookies use jaggery. When melting jaggery I over boiled the syrup and the cookies came out real hard. You really need a hammer to break those. My hubby teased me saying that his teeth will break under such pressure. I felt very sad. At first I couldn’t figure out what went wrong. After so much thinking I remembered the boiling of syrup. So I just wanted to give it a second try. This time I used palm sugar instead of jaggery. I didn’t let the syrup boil. Cookies came out crisp. When I gave a cookie to my daughter, she thought it was from the first try and didn’t take it from me. Then I had to convince her that these cookies are so nice and she took one from me. When she had her first bite she knew that these are good cookies and she took two more from me. Even today she asked for these for her snacks box. So at last I got my daughter’s appreciation and I am very happy. And another point is, I didn’t waste those hard cookies. Tomorrow I will be posting the recipe with which I turned those hard cookies to soft cheese cake.Sending this to Cookies Event by Sameena. Let’s get back to the recipe.
