Hello, hungry ones!
How are your holiday plans? Are you planning to give homemade treats as gifts? Because that would be sweet (meaning, I want that), just not oatmeal cookies. Why? Because I always make them and I think mine is the best! Haha! It’s chewy, dark and really heavy. Started to make these when I was ten and I never looked back since!
What’s your favorite cookie?
What you need:
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 2 cups packed dark brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1-1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 3 cups old fashioned oats
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1/3 cup nuts (optional)
What to do:
1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
2. In the bowl of an electric mixer (or using a hand mixer) beat together the butter and brown sugar. Add eggs, one at a time.
3. Mix together the flour, salt, cinnamon and baking soda in a medium sized bowl. Add it into the creamed mixture in 2 to 3 batches, mixing it until just combined. Mix in the oats.
4. Use your preferred size cookie scoop (or a regular spoon) to drop portions of dough onto a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake for 12-13 minutes or until dark and chewy. If you’d like a crispier cookie, bake it for a bit – just don’t burn it!
5. Let them cool slightly then transfer the cookies onto a plate for serving. Get your glass of milk ready too!
