Haikus are tricky
Butter and sugar taste good
And haikus don’t rhyme
Have cookies with milk
I like mine with a cuppa
Or with a haiku
Stuck for ideas
I used my BigOven App
To find these cookies
It’s my Gen Y way
I want instant recipes
Search-able by phone
So now I’ve combined
Japanese poetry style
With app for cooking
If haikus offend
Get off your bloomin’ high horse
And try do better
Leave me a comment
With your own haiku effort
And best gets a hug*!
*hug may or may not be virtual.
115 grams butter, softened
¾ cup brown sugar, firmly packed
¼ cup caster sugar
1 large egg
2/3 teaspoon vanilla essence
¾ cup flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 ½ cups quick cooking oatmeal, uncooked
¾ cups sultanas (or raisins, if that’s your kinda thing)
½ teaspoons salt
- Preheat oven to 180 C and line cookie trays with baking paper.
- Beat together butter and sugars until creamy, add egg and vanilla and beat well.
- Add flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt and mix well.
- Stir in oatmeal and sultanas/raisins until well blended.

- Cool one minute on tray, then transfer to rack to finish cooling.
Makes: One day I will learn to write this down while baking. I think it made 40.
Healthy: If you make 40 it’s 72 calories a cookie.
Storage: Will keep for a week or two in an airtight container. I had mine for a couple of weeks and they stayed fresh.
