Chinese 5-Spice Oatmeal Nut Cookies
"Chinese 5-Spice gives these chewy, nutty oatmeal cookies a very unique flavor. The nuts are essential to the recipe, acting as part of the "flour," so they can't be left out - however you may substitute any nut that you prefer. I have made these cookies for years and they are one of my daughter's favorite oatmeal cookies. These will not taste anything like a typical oatmeal cookie; Asian inspired, not authentic Chinese."

Prep Time: 15mPT15M
Cook Time: 12mPT12M
- 2 cups quick cooking oats, not instant
- 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 cup coarsely ground almonds or black walnuts (or any nut you prefer)
- 1 1/2 teaspoons Chinese 5-Spice powder
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks)
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
- 2 large eggs
- 2 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
What You Will Need
No special items needed.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a large bowl, mix together the oats, flour, ground nuts, 5-spice powder, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt.
In another bowl, using an electric mixer, cream the butter and both sugars until light and smooth; next add eggs and vanilla to the butter mixture and beat well.
Add flour mixture to the butter mixture and beat until blended.
Drop by mounded tablespoonfuls onto lightly greased cookie sheets(I use a mini meatball scoop);these do spread some while baking, so be sure to leave a big enough space between each, about a 1 1/2" gap between each mound of batter.
Bake at 350° for 12-15 minutes or until done to your liking. Cool on wire racks.
Makes approximately 3 dozen.
