This is the first cookie of its kind that I've ever tried. This is fantastic!

- One-third cup of packed light brown sugar
– One big egg
1-Lemon zest
1-Turnip of freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon of vanilla essence
Old-fashioned rolled oats, 1 and 1/2 cups
Here are the directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. To make sure that cookies come out easily, line baking pans with parchment paper.
2. Whisk together the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt) in a medium basin. These will serve as the base, the good soil, for your cookies.
3. Put the melted butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar into the bowl of your stand mixer and beat until the mixture is as airy as a morning cloud. Blend in the egg until smooth.
4. Gently combine the zest, juice, and vanilla essence from the lemons, and then sit back and enjoy the citrus scent wafting in through the open kitchen window.
5. Without overworking the dough, gradually incorporate the dry ingredients that were left aside earlier until just mixed.
Step 6: Carefully incorporate the rolled oats. The dough, although somewhat sticky, will be as substantial and nutritious as a handshake.
7. Spoon dough into small balls and place on baking pans, allowing space for cookies to expand during baking. 8. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until rims are golden brown and interiors are still soft. After one minute of resting on the baking sheet, move them to a wire rack to cool. The secret, my darling, is patience.
Tips and Variations: - If you're looking for a nuttier variation, mix in half a cup of chopped pecans or walnuts with the oats.
- A A handful of raisins or dried cranberries, if you choose, may be stirred into the dough to make it more festive.
- A These adorable little things will stay fresh for three or four days (if they make it that long) if stored in an airtight container.
- A Feel free to personalize this beloved recipe as you want; for example, you may make it more seasonally appropriate by adding a sprinkle of nutmeg or cinnamon.

The delicate art of Midwestern hospitality is in every mouthful of these cookies, so savor them, soak up the memories, and make new ones.
