1/3 cup butter or margarine
1/3 cup lightly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup warm water
1 cup flour, divided 1/4 cup aside
1 cup quick rolled oats
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking
Cream butter and sugar together thoroughly, then beat in water. Set aside 1/4 cup flour for rolling. Mix together the remaining dry ingredients, then stir them into the creamed mixture.
Add the remaining flour gradually to the dough until it is stiff enough to roll. Divide the dough into 3 lumps about the same size. Roll each lump of dough out about 1/8 inch thick and cut into 12 pieces about the same size. This is much easier than trying to use a cookie cutter if you need to know cookies per serving.
Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees about 10 minutes or until golden brown around the edges. Remove from pan, cool. Store in a covered container.
