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."

  How to Make
 
 

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Step 2

In a large bowl, mix together the oats, flour, ground nuts, 5-spice powder, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

Add flour mixture to the butter mixture and beat until blended.

Step 5

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.

Step 6

Bake at 350° for 12-15 minutes or until done to your liking. Cool on wire racks.

Step 7

Makes approximately 3 dozen.
