Swedish Oatmeal Cookies

This recipe comes from the book "Cookies, Cookies and More Cookies." It's Chris's favorite, and a great addition to a Christmas cookie platter. -Jo



  1. Heat oven to 350' F.
  2. Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off.
  3. In large bowl, combine all cookie ingredients except rolled oats; beat 1 minute at medium speed.
  4. Stir in rolled oats.
  5. In small saucepan, combine sugar, margarine and corn syrup; bring to boil.
  6. Remove from heat; stir in almonds and almond extract. Set aside.
  7. Drop cookie dough by rounded teaspoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  8. Bake at 350' F for 8 minutes.
  9. Spoon scant 1/2 teaspoon topping (I use a bit more) onto center of each cookie, pressing lightly. Return to oven and bake 6 to 8 minutes or until golden brown.
  10. Cool cookies slightly before removing from cookie sheets. Makes approximately 34 cookies.
