Soft Oatmeal Cookies

I was eager to try this recipe that my Aunty gave me and I happen to have all the ingredients in the house too.
The texture of the cookies were really soft on the inside and slightly crisp on the outside. With every bite you could really taste the components of the cookie, in fact, you could smell the cinnamon at the opening of the oven door when these little cookies were done baking.
I hope these were what my Aunty's cookies looked like, well, not stacked upon each other like a tower.
Soft Oatmeal Cookies
Makes about 40-50

  • Ingredients:

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3 cups quick cooking oats ( 1 minutes cook oatmeal)

  • Directions:
  1. In a medium bowl, cream together butter, white sugar, and brown sugar. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon; stir into the creamed mixture. Mix in oats. Cover, and chill dough for at least one hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets. Roll the dough into 1/2 sized balls of large egg , and place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets. Flatten each cookie with a large fork dipped in sugar.
  3. Bake for 8 minutes in preheated oven (I baked it an extra 3 minutes). Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

p.s.Oatmeal cookies always taste better under cooked than over cooked, so don't over cook it, or it will be very hard to chew when it's cooler. You can add nuts, raisins, or dry dates, cherries etc., so there's many different kinds of oatmeal cookies.
