I broke half of the shortbread into crumbs to serve my husband along with some yogurt as a breakfast and cut the rest into bars..I've tried both versions and they were fantastic..perfectly sweet (for my standard ) , and chewy yet slightly crunchy ! To me, eating it alone or pair it with yogurt , either way is heaven !!
Oatmeal Shortbread ( adapted from here )
3 1/2 cups rolled oats
2/3 scant cup brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup raisin
1 1/2 sticks (12 tablespoons) butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
ground cinnamon to sprinkle on top
1. Preheat oven to 350°. Combine the oats, brown sugar, flour, and salt in a bowl. Use fingers or a wooden spoon to work the butter and vanilla into the oat mixture until crumbly and uniform.
2. Press into a buttered 9-inch square dish and bake 20-30 minutes, until golden. Allow to cool in the dish before cutting and serving or the shortbread will disintegrate into a pile of crumbs.
