  • Melt the butter, and pour it immediately over the oat-grain. Let the mixture cool down.

  • Add the sugar, the lightly whipped egg, and the ground bitter almond to the oat mixture. Combine the flour with the baking powder, and then stir into the dough.

  • Drop by spoonfuls onto oiled cookie sheets. Since the cookies float out, just put 6 to 8 spoonfuls on each sheet. Bake the cookies in the middle of the oven for about 6 minutes. Remove and cool.

The flavor is good. Can't get bitter almonds here so substituted regular almonds. Bake time was too hot so reduced the temp to 375 and baked longer. Read More

Yummy - I used one heaped TS of ground almonds instead of the bitter almonds. I only got 20 cookies out of this recipe. Read More

I love these little cookies They are so simple to make and super fast. I did substitute pecans instead of the almonds. You really do need to watch the first batch to be sure your oven temp and time is right for them. They can burn easy. I used the smallest cookie scoop and got 36 cookies. Read More

My daughter and I (and then just my daughter herself) made these and they are so yummy. We follwed the recipe exactly with the exception of adding about a capful of almond extract. Can't get bitter almond in the US but the extract had bitter almond. My family loved it and so did a classroom full of teenagers. Read More

These are so good! Hubby & I were going to have oatmeal for breakfast. I always roast slivered almonds and wanted something different instead of oatmeal with raisins and almonds. Did this recipe adding both those extra ingredients. Will do again. Read More
