Crumble Cookies

What you need: 

1 cup vegan buttery spread (at room temp.)
1 1/2 cups white sugar
3/4 cup walnuts
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup flour
1 cup quick cooking rolled oats

What you do: 

Preheat oven to 350 Fahrenheit.
In a food processor, combine buttery spread, sugar and nuts. Process until all nuts are small and mixture is light and fluffy. **
Add salt and soda to wet mixture. Stir to combine.
Add flour and oatmeal alternately in 1/2 cup increments (e.g., 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup oatmeal, etc.). The final mixture will be fairly dry but not quite crumbly.
Scoop out large balls of the dough (slightly larger than a golf ball) and form into a ball with your fingers.
Place on cookie sheet and bake for 18-20 minutes or until just beginning to brown.
Let cool at LEAST 5 minutes until transferring to a cooling rack. The cookies are quite crumbly and will fall apart easily while they are still hot.
**Alternatively, simply grind nuts in blender or food processor then use a hand or stand mixer.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

i tried making these into pecan sandies, too.  the only thing different i did besides use pecans was to use old fashioned oats.  the (delicious) batter was way too soft but i went with it for one batch - 12 ping pong sized balls.  they went completely flat and cooked into one big mass of crispified cookie.  tasty - kinda like toffee, but i had to chisel them off the pan (seriously - it gave me a blister).  after that, i added a couple scoops of flour to get it to a cookie dough texture im used to.  these turned out way better, they were still pretty flat but came off the pan after a few minutes and stayed nice and chewy (they were only in existence for 1 evening though, so i don't know how long they stay chewy).  i think i baked these smaller ones for about 10ish minutes - til they were barely browned on the edges, and i got about 30 palm sized cookies out of it.

*MmMm* Soooo tasty!!!

I also made pecan sandies and wow I mean WOW :)

My word of advice is to not let them fully cool on the pan because when you try to remove them they break apart :*(
