Peg's Aggression Cookies Recipe

Category Oatmeal

I am looking for a recipe for Peg's Aggression Cookies. They are oatmeal cookies, from her "I Hate to... Cookbook"! My kids and I did these way back in the early 80's. The new "Aggression Cookies" have eggs in the batter, our recipe did not. Lots of butter, brown sugar, oatmeal certainly... then all you had to do was punch the batter with your fists! That's why everyone got into the act, we would just punch and punch. It was fun and they were very good cookies. Please help me find the recipe for the grandkids.

Aggression Cookies

Recipe By :

Serving Size : 180 Preparation Time :0:00

Categories : Cookies Desserts

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method

-------- ------------ --------------------------------

1 tbsp Baking soda

3 c Brown sugar

3 c Flour

3 c butter

2 Eggs

6 c Oatmeal

She said it is a Peg Bracken recipe, and Peg stated "However, these are

the best-tasting as well as the fastest, easiest and cheapest cookies I ever

ran into, and I wouldn't say such a thing unless I meant it. The Community

Mental Health Center at St. Lawrence Hospital in Lansing, Michigan, printed

it, in the hope of channeling some energies away from throwing bricks, or

snarling at Santa Claus. The more you knead, mash, squeeze and beat the

bejunior out of the dough, the better you feel and the better the cookies

taste. Moreover, the recipe is easy to cut down. (As is, makes 15 dozen.)

Put all this in a huge bowl and mash, knead, squeeze, (see above). Then form

it into small balls, midway between filbert size and English walnut size, on

an ungreased cookie sheet. Butter the bottom of a small glass, dip it in

granulated sugar and mash the balls flat. Keep doing it. You need butter the

glass bottom only once or twice, but re-dip it in sugar for each ball. Then

bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 min. I found you need to let them sit just a

bit before taking up from the cookie sheet. We also cooked them for the 12

min. You need some space between them if you make them any bigger cause they

tend to spread out.

I've had two of Peg's The I Hate to Cook Books that I've held on to since the 60s - (1 pub 1960 - the other 1966 (pulled them off the shelf intending to post the recipe you requested, but "Aggression Cookies" aren't listed in either book - i checked the indices under Cookies, Aggression c, & Oatmeal c,

which suggests that Peg may have written another I Hate to Cook Book later. Does anyone have the bibliography for it?

My two are paperbacks, published by Fawcett World Library. i just noticed that way back then, they cost me all of $.60, & $.50, respectively... WOW!

Thank you for responding.

PS: Her recipes were a blessing when i was young & a working mom, but they are even more wonderful now, because they are easy and quick; however, they don't taste the least bit quick or easy - a godsend for those among us elders who live alone, or are cooking now just for one or two...

Aggression Cookies

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup butter

1 cup flour

1 teaspoon soda

2 cups oatmeal

Mix like pie crust until soft...Beat it...hit it... pound it... pinch it...squish and squash it. Don't quit until

you've worked all those nasty aggressive feelings out of your system.

Now flatten one-inch balls of dough on ungreased cookie sheets. Use the bottom of a glass dipped in

sugar to flatten. Bake at 350 for about ten minutes.

Although not listed in the index, the recipe is in the "I Hate To Cook Almanack" by Peg Bracken. You will find it on page 79. Just like Eplitt's recipe except omitting the eggs.

One of my favorites!

I read it in a magazine (<i>Famiy Circle</i> or <i>Women's Day</i>?) back in the 1970s I've lost my clipping - but your submission seems right - although I'm pretty sure there were no eggs in it.
