Oatmeal Cookies

A couple weeks ago I made up a batch of oatmeal cookies that I've been meaning to share with you. Things have come up and I haven't really had a chance to get the post written. I'm finally get around to it today. These cookies are from a Nestle Toll House recipe. I have a great book by them that's all cookies and bars. The pictures get your mouth watering.

Oatmeal Cookies
Makes 4 dozen
  • 1 1/1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup butter, softened 
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 cups quick or old-fashioned oats

1. Combine flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in small bowl. Beat butter, sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla in large mixing bowl until creamy. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in oats. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets. 
2.  Bake in preheated 375 degree oven for 7 to 8 minutes for chewy cookies or 9 to 10 minutes for crispy cookies. Let stand for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Makes about 4 dozen cookies. 
** I bake mine for about 9 minutes and they turn our crispy on the edges and chewy in the middle. 

 Happy baking!!
