I'll be over your shoulder reading it too.  I LOVE oatmeal, but I must confess, I have never made a cut-out cookie with this delicious, nutritious grain.

knowing how sticky oat flour can be, this ought to be interesting...

If you were to want a cut oatmeal cookie you would probably start with a mixture of oatflour with wheat or spelt instead of straight wheat.

Here is another recipe I found.


Oatmeal Kolaches recipe

1 3/4 cups biscuit mix
1/3 cup butter or margarine
1 cup rolled oats, quick or regular, uncooked
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
confectioners sugar
6 tablespoons thick preserves, any flavor

Put biscuit mix into mixing bowl. Cut in butter or margarine until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in oats and sugar.

Combine egg, milk and vanilla extract; add to dry ingredients. Stir just until dry ingredients are moistened. Turn dough onto lightly floured board. Knead lightly several times. Roll dough 1/2-inch thick and cut out 3-inch rounds with floured cookie cutter. Place on greased baking sheet. Press a deep indentation in center of each round with back of floured spoon or thumb. Fill each with 1 teaspoon of preserves. Bake at 400 degrees F until done and lightly browned, about 10 or 12 minutes. More preserves may be added after baking. Sprinkle with sifted confectioners sugar.

Makes about 12.

Mix flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and oats in a bowl. Cut in the butter until mixture is crumbly. Beat eggs with water and mix in dry ingredients. Work into a stiff dough.

Hello, I was just searching for an oatcake recipe and found this post with Stac's recipes...they look good and I'm going to try the second one tomorrow. Thank you Stac!
Back to the original question re: an oatmeal cut-out cookie, I've made a brown sugar and oatmeal shortbread cookie that works well for rolling and cutting; this is an excerpt from my post about these cookies (not sure if this might interest you):

Here is a link to Fine Cooking's basic shortbread cookie recipe:
The cookie dough is really adaptable flavoring-wise:
Brown sugar can be substituted for the white sugar listed in the recipe
Up to half-cup of other ingredients may be added (such as quick oats)
