I had some Quaker oats sitting at home that I wanted to use up and around the same time, a conversation with Nandu put the idea of baking an oatmeal cookie in my head. I have made some Oatmeal Apricot cookies in the past and I wasn’t too kicked with the way it turned out. I guess the overpowering flavour of the oats is what put me off. (explains why I had the oats sitting at home for so long :P) So, this time, I wanted to make something that added that zing to the oaty flavour. That’s how I landed up making these lovely Oatmeal Lemon Cookies and they’re eggless!
Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Beat together the butter and sugar. I was too lazy to use my beater so I just used a normal whisk and beat it properly for 2 mins or so. Add the curd, lemon zest and juice and beat some more. Sift together the flour, baking powder & soda. Fold in to the wet mixture.
Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls on greased cookie sheets. Bake 20 minutes, or until golden around edges. Cool 2 minutes in the oven and place on wire racks to cool completely.
