Mama’s Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

 

I have been looking for a long time for an oatmeal cookie recipe that comes out moist and chewy.  I finally found one, but of course, I had to tweak it a little (well, a lot) to make it even more delicious.

These oatmeal cookies are awesome, especially fresh out of the oven.

Ingredients for Mama’s Oatmeal Cookies:

1 cup butter, softened

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup packed brown sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

3 cups quick oats

1 cup raisins or 3/4 cup nuts (optional)

Instructions for Mama’s Oatmeal Cookies:

In a medium bowl, cream together; butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well  between each addition. Then mix in vanilla.

Next, combine all-purpose flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.  Slowly stir dry ingredients into creamed mixture.  Add quick oats, mix until well combined.  If you choose to use raisins or  nuts, add them now, combine well.  Cover bowl with plastic wrap and chill for at least an hour.

Grease cookie sheets.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Roll the dough into 1 1/2 inch balls and place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets.

Bake 8-10 minutes. Allow to cool 5 minutes and enjoy!
