Almond & Oat Cookies

Cookies are one of my favourite snacks and I always buy the huge box of mixed cookies that we get at Costco. This weekend they were out of stock and if you knew me you would know that such things really irritate me and I'd be grumbling about it for the whole day. 
After lunch as usual I started leafing through one of my baking books when I saw these cookies. They looked so tempting and after the morning incident, there was no need to think twice and off I marched into the kitchen.
The cookies were awesome. They were chewy, the nuts and oats added great flavor and texture. Just my kind of cookies. No more store bought cookies for sure.

Recipe from Cakes and Bakes 500

3/4cup caster (superfine) sugar

2/3 cup almonds (chopped)
2/3cups rolled oats

Method :
