Heat oven to 425. Line your baking sheet with Pamed foil or parchment.
In lg. bowl, combine flour, oats, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder and salt and mix we.. Cut in butter with pasty blender until mix resembles coarse crumbs. In small bowl, combine milk, egg and vanilla.
(Now, ladies...after I got the 'course crumb' look, I just mixed it ALL together...in one bowl...at one time)
Drop by 1/4 cupfuls 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheet.
Bake about 11 minutes, until nicely browned..
Like everything, Please don't cook too long or they will be dry.
These just about HAVE to be served warm so if using a microwave to reheat...just a few seconds will do the trick.

EGG NOG ........
OOO boy, I do love that egg nog.
I like mine WITHOUT the nog...
just a dusting of freshly grated NUTMEG.
My daddy always made homemade egg nog every Christmas and it was,
without a doubt, the best liquid I'd ever put in my young mouth.
(I had my glass of it before the grown-up "stuff" was added.)
sooo good....sooo full of UNCOOKED eggs....it's a wonder we didn't all die...
After I was grown and knew more about eating raw eggs, I told my mama
to try to find Dad a different recipe...
she said, "Awww, the whiskey I put in it COOKS THE EGGS."
hahhaa...I think of this every time I have a cup of egg nog.
