Sometimes you just need a good old fashioned cookie. No bells, whistles, special tricks or complicated 17 step recipes. Just cookies.
Here’s a classic Oatmeal Cookie recipe that never fails me. (The raisons, coconut and nuts are all optional…but you should opt for yes. It’s delicious.)
WHAT YOU NEED:
2 STICKS OF BUTTER SOFTENED
3/4 CUP BROWN SUGAR (PACKED)
1/2 CUP GRANULATED SUGAR
1 TEASPOON VANILLA
1 1/2 CUPS FLOUR
1 TEASPOON BAKING SODA (I ADD A DASH EXTRA)
1 TEASPOON CINNAMON
1/2 TEASPOON SALT
3 CUPS ROLLED OATS
1 CUP RAISONS (OPTIONAL)
1/2 CUP SHREDDED COCONUT (OPTIONAL)
1/2 CUP CHOPPED PECANS (OPTIONAL)
WHAT YOU DO:
(Heat oven to 350)
Mix butter, and sugars with a mixer until creamy. Then add the eggs and vanilla.
Add the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Mix well.
Add oats, raisons, coconut, nuts. (This will be thick. Your arms will have a nice work out)
Drop cookie dough (ooooh oatmeal cookie dough is the BEST) in rounded spoonfuls, or use a cookie scoop. Bake 7-10 minutes and remove from heat quickly after you pull them out.
Your house will smell amazing.
(Should make about 4 dozen cookies)
