BEAN COOKIES (AKA SCREW-ENTENMANS COOKIES)
  
 I took 1/2 cup of great northern beans (medium-size white beans),
 cooked them until they were very soft, drained and mashed them.  I
 guess this made about one cup of mashed beans.
  
 I creamed them with:
  
    1/2 cup white sugar
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1 tsp vanilla
    1/2 tsp salt, but obviously you can leave that out
  
 I then took four cups of rolled oats, and ground them up in the
 cuisinart until it was flour with a little grit to it.
  
 Mix in
  
    the oat flour just described
    1 tsp baking powder
    1 tsp baking soda
  
 Now chop 1/4 lb. dried apricots into fourths or so, and mix them in.
  
 Heat the oven to 375F
  
 Either
  
    1. divide the batter into 12 huge balls and bake for about 15
       minutes to make 12 huge cookies, or
  
    2. divide the batter into 24 big balls and bake for about 10
       minutes
