Large, Thin, Very Gingerly Oat Cookies

I know I'm posting too much sweet food lately, but if not at this festive time, when to publish recipes for cookies? It is difficult however to find meaning in posting a recipe for oatmeal cookies, since it is so easy to find any kind of oat cookie recipes. As a fan of oatmeal, I make them sweet and salty, with chocolate chips, raisins, dried fruit, or just plain. Playing with various ingredients I came across this combination this summer and made them many time since then. The reason is mainly the healthy ingredients and nutritional value that makes them very convenient breakfast on the go. They do not contain flour, but only oatmeal. Another reason is that they are very large and thin and are therefore slightly different from other cookies I make and for that reason my children are very fond of them. If you have not yet prepared such thin cookies I believe you will find interesting this simple technique of making them. Although these are everyday biscuits, you can add them as a little healthier addition to your holiday cookies collection.

Princess Donuts Muffins

These donuts are not Princess Donuts, but one of my kitchen experiments, which turned out quite interesting. This is a combination of Yorkshire Puddings and light vanilla egg cream made with rice flour. They are very tasty and easy to make.
