Oatmeal Sticks

This is a recipe my mom used to make, and since they are positively addictive, I made sure I got the recipe. These are one of my daughter's favorites as well. I bet you can't eat just one, lol!!

pinch tips: How to Knead Dough




15 Min


1 1/2 c
1/2 c
oatmeal, quick or regular
3 c
all purpose flour, more if needed
1 Tbsp
granulated sugar
1 Tbsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
1/2 c
butter or margarine (1 cube)

Directions Step-By-Step

Heat milk to scalding, add oatmeal and allow to cool.
Sift dry ingredients together. Cut butter or margarine (I prefer butter for its taste) into dry ingredient mixture until well incorporated (pea sized butter pieces).
Using your hands, form it into a ball. Depending on your flour, you may need to add more flour just to keep it from being too sticky. Turn it out onto a floured board and knead just until smooth. No excess kneading is necessary - just so it holds together.
Pull off a small sized ball - enough to make a stick about a foot long when rolled to 1/2 inch diameter size. You may need to grease your hands for this: Roll the dough between your two hands into a rope of about 1/2 inch diameter and place it onto a greased cookie sheet. Continue placing the ropes out onto the cookie sheet, about an inch or so apart (they rise a bit). Bake at 400 degrees fahrenheit until they just turn a bit brown (about 10 to 15 minutes?) This makes a lot, but they go fast!
