The fast pace we live in today takes far too much for granted. Taking time to find our roots and enjoy a simpler way of life can bring a whole new meaning to sharing. At Comfy Country Creations our family and it's history are an important part of our day to day way of life. This page is dedicated to the traditions, memories and recipes.

The Turney Clan
 Comfy Country shares memories and history.

Margaret (Cotter) Turney was born July 1st. 1911 in Nelson, B.C. Canada and later married William (Bill) Turney in September 1935, Clinton, BC.

She is remembered as saying these Oat Cakes taste far better if made with bear grease.

Oat Cake Cookies

These are more a cookie than a cake.
  • 3 cups of flour
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp soda
  • 1 1/2 cups lard (must be lard)
    ( original recipe called for bear grease )
  • 3 cups oatmeal
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup water

Mix flour, sugar, salt and soda together. Work in lard as for pastry. Add oatmeal and 1/2 cup of water. Continue to mix. If mixture seems dry, add remaining water 1 Tbsp at a time to reach pastry consistency. Roll to 1/8" thick on a well floured board. Cut into 2" squares or use a cookie cutter. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Freezes very well. Serve plain, with butter and jam, cheese, peanut butter or whatever you fancy.

Number Of Servings: Five to eight dozen depending on method of cutting out.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
