so yesterday i made THE BEST oatmeal cookies. they were soft and chewy and just scrumptious so i had to share the recipe with all of you. these are super easy to make and even more fun to eat. you'll have a hard time sharing these yummy little cookies.
1 cup softened butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
recipe calls for 3 cups quick cooking oats, however i suggest cutting it down to 2 for even softer chewy cookies. you may add raisins and nuts if you'd like although i am not a fan. ooh chocolate chips would be delicious too!
step one: in medium bowl, cream together butter, white sugar and brown sugar. beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla. combine flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. stir into creamed mixture. mix in oats. cover and chill dough for at least one hour.
step two: preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). grease cookie sheet. roll dough into walnut sized balls and place 2 inches aprat on cookie sheets. flatten each cookie with a large fork dipped in sugar.
step three: bake for 8 to 10 minutes in preheated oven. allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. then eat and enjoy!!!
happy baking! stay tuned for my 'oh you pretty things' post coming a little later today. xo.
