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.
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.
