These crackly cookies are perfect for afternoon tea.


  • cup packed light-brown sugar

  • ¼ cup (½ stick) unsalted butter, melted

  • 1 large egg

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 ½ cups rolled oats, (not quick-cooking)

  • ½ cup sliced almonds

  • Nonstick cooking spray


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk brown sugar, butter, egg, and vanilla until smooth. Mix in oats and almonds.

  3. Drop mixture by level tablespoons onto prepared baking sheets, spacing about 2 inches apart. Spray the underside of a metal spatula with nonstick cooking spray, and use to flatten cookies into 2 1/2-inch disks.

  4. Bake until golden, 14 to 16 minutes. Cool completely on baking sheets. (Handle with care; cookies are fragile.)
