The Only Cookie Recipe You Need to Feed a Crowd

This is the easiest cookie recipe, hands down. It’s also the fastest cookie recipe, and my favorite to make. You read that right: oat and date cookies are my favorite cookies to make. It’s the most no-stress cookie recipe you can get without getting into the “3-ingredient recipe realm”. That said, it seems like you can count the number of ingredients on one hand. I love making these for friends, because they never fail to impress, and they take 10 minutes to put together.

On top of all that, it’s Ramadan, so of course I have an abundance of dates in the kitchen. This is really the only time I have dates around at all.

Speaking of Ramadan, I wrote an article at work about what to eat to stay healthy during Ramadan. Check it out here!
I love these cookies so much that this is the second time I’ve written about them in a year, but I’m sure your friends will rejoice when you show up to the party with these in tow. Enjoy!

Oat and Date Cookies
Makes about 25 small cookies
Ingredients
1 1/2 cups  flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, cut up
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup coarsely chopped mejdool dates

Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles fine crumbs, and when it sticks together when molded into hands. Add the egg, beating until just blended. Mix in the sugar, oats, and dates. Drop tablespoons of the dough 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets. This dough should be very firm.
Bake until lightly browned, 12-15 minutes, at 350 degrees. Cool on the sheets until the cookies firm slightly. Enjoy warm or at room temperature!
Ramadan Mubarak! Do you have any date recipes you’re cooking this month? Leave them in the comments!
