Perhaps I didn’t fully elaborate on yesterday’s amazingly addictive Oatmeal Crisps. I woke in the middle of the night thinking of my extended rant which failed to mention much of anything about their real virtues.
Did I mention the lacy cookies that clock in at under two minutes baking time per batch are not only ethereal, crisp, and crunchy, but their rich and nutty flavor belies the fact that they have less than 20 calories each? I didn’t think so.
Did I tell you that they have the added benefit of oatmeal’s nutritional value, fiber, and flavor? That for the small number and volume of ingredients you receive so much? I think not.
Did I mention that although these are prepared in the microwave, and there still seems to be some concern about its usage, the convenience and advantages of the microwave in cases such as this, are well worth considering?
Did I mention that their charm lends not only to copious snacking but also that they make a style statement when perched alongside or atop ice cream, sorbet, parfaits, mousse, or nearly anything else you can think of? Not so much.
Did I mention that even though they take so little time to produce, they make an excellent and thoughtful gift when you would rather not show up empty handed on someone’s doorstep?
No, I didn’t think so.
