Chinese Five-Spice Oatmeal Cookies
- 1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
- 1 egg, at room temperature
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 3/4 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 3/4 tsp Chinese five spice
- 3/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 cups quick cooking rolled oats
Preheat oven to 350, line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, five spice, cinnamon, and salt. In another bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until fluffy 2-3 minutes.
Add the egg and vanilla and beat until smooth. Stir in the flour mixture until well incorporated. Mix in the oats.
Drop dough in 1 1/2 inch portions, about 2 inches apart, onto prepared baking sheets. Bake for 12 minutes, until lightly golden.
Let cool on baking sheets 5 minutes, then remove to wire racks to cool completely.
Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
