"When I was a student at the University of Missouri, I spent a semester working in a preschool. That's where I discovered Aggression Cookies, a not-so-unique cookie with a unique name. These cookies, I discovered, offer a socially acceptable way for youngsters to let off steam and to make a tasty snack at the same time. The dough is stiff, so children can mash, knead, squeeze and pound it to their hearts' content without inflicting any damage. Children don't need to know the name of these cookies; just tell them you've got a special cookie for them to make."
Combine brown sugar, butter, oats, baking soda and flour in a large mixing bowl. Mash, knead, squeeze and pound ingredients to make a dough.
Form dough into small balls. Put balls on ungreased baking sheets. Grease the bottom of a small glass or jar; dip into granulated sugar and use to flatten balls.
Bake in a preheated 350 deg oven about 15 minutes or until done. Transfer to racks to cool. Makes about 7 dozen cookies.
