If you thought that oats were just for making cereal with, think again....

Scottish Oat Cookies

1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 sugar
7/8 cup butter
2 tablespoons corn syrup
5/8 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/3 cups rolled oats
1 egg

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Beat the butter with the sugars until light and fluffy.  Add the egg and syrup and mix well.  Sift in the flour and baking powder and add the oats.  Stir until well mixed together.  Put heaped teaspoons of the mixture onto a greased cookie sheet and flatten slightly.  Bake for 12 minutes then lift onto a cake rake.  The cookies will be slightly soft, but they'll become firm and chewy when they cool down.
