oatmeal bullets

There is an easy way to be a favorite AWANA leader and that is to shamelessly bring a treat for your clubbers every week whether they've earned it or not. This past week I brought one of our family's favorite baked cookies and the girls loved them. They are affectionately known around here as:

OATMEAL BULLETS

1 cup softened butter
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 package vanilla instant pudding
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
1 1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 1/2 cups quick cooking oats
Optional: 1 cup raisins or chocolate chips

Combine butter, the sugars, pudding mix, and vanilla and beat until smooth and creamy. Beat in the eggs. Gradually stir in the flour and baking soda, then stir in the oats (and optional ingredients, if using). Mixture will be stiff. Roll into balls about an inch in diameter and bake on ungreased cookie sheets at 375 degrees for about 10 to 12 minutes. I can't tell you know many the recipe is suppose to make since we have a lot of finger dippers in our house, but probably 5 to 6 dozen :-)

Enjoy!

Blessings,

I assume you'd go with two or three cups of "optional" chocolate chips...hehe!
