Thread: "Quick" oatmeal for cookies?

    Default "Quick" oatmeal for cookies?

    Can you use "Quick Cooking" oatmeal for making cookies? Scotchies, or
    whatever?

    The oats look a little more broken up than regular "old fashioned"
    rolled oats.

    I say yes. *Not* instant- just quick.

    I use Quick Cooking all the time, as it's the oat flavor I want, not
    just the old fashioned oats needing more "stewing" than a cookie bake
    can offer.

    There's a third kind? That's good, then. Because that lowers my
    chances of buying the wrong kind :-)

    Sadly, there are *way* too many kinds. IME that *increases* the
    chances for error. I wouldn't use Irish or Scottish oats of any
    kind. [well-- I *would*- and I prefer them, but not when the recipe
    asks for 'regular ' oats]

    Then 'regular', quick, instant, toasted and untoasted. . .

    Same here, Cheri! I used the old-fashioned rolled oats once in cookies,
    and didn't at all care for the coarse texture and chewiness, as just was
    an unpleasant experience in my mouth. I always use the quick-cooking
    oats in all recipes, even if they do call for the old-fashioned ones,
    and always have great results. I don't even think I'd feed them to my
    horse....well, if I had one! ;-)

    Whole oats. Maybe 30 years ago I knew a guy who soaked whole oats in
    Scotch. To someone who likes Scotch this may seem a waste of good
    whiskey. I never figured the oats were worth worrying about wasting and
    I never tried oats in rye, bourbon or Canadian.

    Steel cut oats. We usually have a can of steel cut.

    Rolled oats aka regular. At the moment we have some rolled barley and
    some rolled rye. Not sure if we happen to have rolloed oats at the
    moment.

    Quick oats. Like rolled oats only steam heated then dried to be
    partially cooked.

    Instant oats. Like quick oats but also chopped into much smaller pieces
    to have higher surface area to mass ratio to cook much faster. We tend
    to have this type on hand in packets as my wife likes them for breakfast.

    Oat flower. Okay for specialty baking but don't really fit the pattern.

    What I read said they were just cut/rolled thinner and chopped up so
    they absorb water quicker. Both rolled oats and quick cooking oats
    are steamed before rolling.

    And the Web never lies.

    Is it really spelled "flower" or did some AOLer hijack your Usenet
    account?

    As I typed it I was recalling comedy movie. A tax auditor is sent to
    audit a bakery. He falls in love with the baker. One day he arrives
    late carrying packages. "I brought you flours".

    Uhm, I'll go with the AOLer story.

    Stranger than Fiction.

    ObFood: OK, so anybody got a good a TnT recipe for Oatmeal cookies
    using either semi-sweet, white, and/or butterscotch morsels(*)? I
    bought some dulce de leche cookies that delayed my cookie-making plans
    but I decided I wanted something better than these cheapos.

    (*) They were on sale for $1.77/ea, buy 2 get one free, so that's
    about $1.18/bag.

    I downloaded it earlier. That and "Being John Malkovitch" which is
    another unusual movie, kinda related.
