These oatmeal cookies are so delicious- they are chewy and are so rich. I thought the brown sugar gave the cookies a butterscotch-like taste. These are totally purist oatmeal cookies. Don’t get me wrong- not purist in the sense that they are in any way healthy, but purist because they are so simple. And flawless 🙂
I got this recipe from The Pioneer Woman website and I didn’t make any changes. Next time I may try adding some cinnamon or chocolate chips, or raisins (if that’s your thing).
Brown Sugar Oatmeal Cookies
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups packed brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 whole eggs
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3 cups Old Fashioned oats
Preheat oven to 350*. Beat together the butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, scraping the bowl after each one. Mix together the flour, salt and baking soda in a separate bowl and add it to the creamed mixture in 2 or 3 batches, mixing until just combined. Mix in the oats until just combined.
Scoop onto a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper spacing them a couple inches apart, and bake them for 12 – 13 minutes. Let them cool slightly on the pan then transfer to a plate or cooling rack.
Using my cookie scoop, I made 3 dozen cookies.
