The combination of savory cheeses; sweet, dried figs; and filling oatmeal in these hearty morsels make them just right for breakfast or as a first-course party snack.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • Freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Manchego cheese
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped dried figs

Directions

Preheat oven to 350° F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. 

In a small bowl, mix together water, oil, sugar and egg. Place oats in a large bowl and pour wet mixture over the top. Stir to combine and let sit for 5 minutes. 

In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt, baking soda, thyme and pepper. Stir in cheeses and figs. Stir together flour and oat mixtures until well combined.

Scoop tablespoon-sized cookies onto the prepared baking sheets, then flatten to 1/4-inch-thick. Bake until edges are golden and set, 16 to 20 minutes. Let cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
