Oatmeal Shortbread cookies!

Since we are still having summer weather here in Oregon, it has been hard for me to get motivated into fall decorating when my roses are still blooming so beautifully. So until the rains arrive, the fall decorating is on hold!

Today I am joining in on the Etsy Cottage Style blog party...... sharing one of my favorites....

Oatmeal Shortbread cookies

1 cup butter (no substitutes)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups quick cooking oats
3/4 teaspoon salt

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Gradually add flour, oats and salt. Press into a greased 8" x 12" brownie pan. Prick with a fork if desired. Bake at 325 degrees for 30-35 min or until lightly browned. 
Cool at least 10 minutes before cutting.

I'm currently "collecting" good recipes from blogs, and they all sound SO good. I'm not sure how I will manage to make them all.

At any rate, these cookies sound delicious, and since I love oatmeal, I'm sure to try them.

Thanks for sharing. :)
