- ¾ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon water
step 1: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
step 2: Dissolve the baking soda in the water.
step 3: Combine the oats, flour and brown sugar. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the baking soda mixture and form dough into a ball. Either roll dough out to 1/4 inch thick and cut with cookie cutters or press dough into the bottom of one 9x13 inch baking pan.
