Nothing like a nice, chunky oatmeal cookie on a Sunday night, Monday morning, or Tuesday afternoon, actually, ANYTIME is the right time for an oatmeal cookie. We’ve made them before, but never this thick and delicious. Oatmeal cookies have an incredible texture, and the way we make ’em, pack a big punch of flavor with every bite.
This was such a simple recipe, its quite dangerous…dangerous in that, if you’re ever craving them, it’d only be but a hop, skip, and a jump away to make. Did that make sense? No, but you get it. Didn’t mean to make you do all that cardio. 😛 Anyway, we used the following: cup of all purpose flour, stick of butter, 2/3 cup brown sugar, an egg, teaspoon of vanilla extract, teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda, a cup or so of quick oats, and depending on your taste, add some chocolate chips, and or your favorite nuts. Didn’t use raisins, I’m not a fan. As far as baking times, really depends on how thick and powerful your oven is…we baked at a temperature of 330 degrees and they were done in about 20mins.
P.S. Sorry about the inconsistent colors in the photos..the lighting isn’t ideal in our kitchen in the evening.
P.P.S. These are so great crumbled over ice cream and oatmeal….droool.
