  1. Transfer to freezer and freeze at least 1 hour, but no more than 3 hours.
  2. Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
  3. Use sharp serrated knife to cut loaf into ⅛-inch thick slices. The semi frozen state of the loaf will help keep the cookie from crumbling while being sliced so thinly.
  4. Arrange slices in single layer on a cookie sheet.
  5. Bake 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown, flipping halfway through baking. Transfer to cooling rack to cool completely.
  6. Store at room temperature in airtight container up to 1 week.

        Elisa,

        Thanks for the question! I have not used oat milk before but I am sure you are familiar with its properties and how it bakes up. I say go for it! In keeping with my grandmother would say 'you never know unless you try!'.

        Let me know if you try with oat milk and then let the rest of the class know.

        Cheers!

        Sarah

      The cookies turned out great!
      I even like them soft, before they were sliced and baked.
