Wisconsin B&B Pastry Chef Shares Favorite Holiday Cookie Recipe

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

We asked innkeepers for a favorite holiday cookie recipe,
and not surprisingly the first to land in our inbox uses an ingredient
associated with breakfast – oatmeal.  Pastry Chef Mary Jo Johnson at
the McConnell Inn in Green Lake – yes, some of our
innkeepers are culinary school grads – shares the inn’s favorite holiday cookie
recipe for Oatmeal Snowflakes.  Chef Mary
Jo noted, “These cookies are simple, but have a
festive winter appeal on your holiday cookie tray.”

1 cup butter
½ cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
½ tsp salt
1 cup flour
1 ½ cups oatmeal
Mix all ingredients well. Drop by small spoon onto cookie sheet lined with
parchment or silpat.
Dip glass in powdered sugar and flatten cookie. Bake at 350° for 8 minutes or
until edges are just golden. Cool on pan before removing, dust with powdered
sugar. Yield: 4 dozen cookies.
