Spiced Oatmeal Crispies

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

The pepper is optional but good to add in, it compliments the other spices! Plan ahead the dough needs to chill for a minimum of 2 hours before baking or up to 24 hours, the dough may also be frozen if desired.

These are delicious cookies. I only used 1/2 cup butter leaving off the additional 2 tablespoons. For the spices, I used my recipe #145505 and pecans for the nuts. I placed the dough in the freezer for 1 hour prior to shaping and used my cookie scoop. The yield was right on target. These are a nice soft cookie when hot and crisp with a chewy center when cold.
