The Best Soft and Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

I seem to have a thing for cookies. Although for some reason I’m not horribly found of chocolate chip or peanut butter (I like peanut butter no bakes though, haha).

It’s not that I hate them, I just don’t have the motivation to make them like The Most Amazing Sugar Cookies You’ll Ever Taste I posted about not too long ago. And these awesome oatmeal cookies. Usually my decision falls between that one and this one. It depends on whether or not I want to make a huge mess or go the cleaner route.

These are so easy to make and don’t take very long either, so whip up a batch before company arrives, or before the kiddos finish lunch.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Beat 1 cup softened butter, 1 cup packed brown sugar, and 1/2 cup granulated sugar until smooth.

Add 2 eggs, 1 at a time, and beating after each addition until incorporated. Then stir in 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract.Oatmeal cookies image 3 (2)

In a separate bowl combine 1 1/4 cups flour, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon baking soda.

Add to butter mixture and stir just until combined.

Mix in 3 cups of quick oats, then drop by the spoonful on a baking sheet.

Bake for 10-12 minutes.

They may look soft in the middle when you remove them from the oven, that’s ok. Let them set for 5 minutes on pan before removing them to finish cooling. The middles will set up and you will have a nice chewy oatmeal cookie.
