Coffee-Mate Cafe Party Oatmeal Cookies

Hosting a Coffee -Mate Cafe Party is awesome. Making cookies using one of Coffee-Mate's creamers is even better. I found a recipe on Coffee-Mate's website for Oatmeal cookies that I thought sounded quite interesting. I improvised a bit because in the recipe, it calls for Cinnamon Flavor Creme Flavor "Liquid" Coffee Creamer, which I didn't have, BUT, I had their Hazelnut Biscotti Powdered Creamer. So I thought, hmmm...I think that would be quite yummy! So I gave it a try! Hope you enjoy the cookies.

3/4 cup margarine or butter (I used unsalted butter)
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp Hazelnut Biscotti Coffee Mate Creamer
2 cups rolled oats

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a mixing bowl, beat margarine or butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add about half of the flour, all the brown sugar, granulated sugar, egg, baking powder, vanilla, baking soda, and the powdered creamer. Beat till thoroughly combined. Beat in remaining flour. Stir in oats. Drop by rounded teaspoons two inches apart onto an ungreased cook sheet. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes or till edges are golden. Cool cookies on a wire rack. Instead of a cookie sheet, I actually used a heart shaped mold for my cookies.
