Oatmeal Cookie 3 Ways

January 29, 2013

My little sister has been begging me for a good oatmeal cookie. The only problem is that I have been so busy with work that there was no time for me to deliver. I somehow managed to squeeze in a batch, but I wanted to make them extra special. So this post is how I created a basic oatmeal cookie 3 ways.

I searched the pantry and found a few of her favorite things… chocolate chips, white chocolate chips and craisins. I can totally work with that!

I whipped up a basic oatmeal cookie recipe, divided the dough into three bowls and got creative. The first bowl had just plain ol’ oatmeal cookie dough. The second, I filled with white chocolate chips and crasins. The third batch, I loaded with chocolate chips.

I figured one of these soft and chewy treats would satisfy her craving!

Oatmeal Cookies

  • Oatmeal cookies
  • 1C. butter, softened
  • 1/2 C. sugar
  • 1 C. brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1t. vanilla extract
  • 2 C. flour
  • 1t. baking soda
  • 1t. salt
  • 1 t. cinnamon
  • 3-1/2 C. oats
  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment and set aside.
  2. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a medium sized bowl. Set aside.
  3. Cream together the butter and sugars until fluffy. Mix in the eggs and extract. Slowly stir in your dry ingredients followed by the oats.
  4. [br][b]**This is also where you would add additional ingredients. I did 1/3 regular oatmeal cookies, 1/3 white chocolate chips and crasins, 1/3 chocolate chips.**[/b]
  5. Scoop your dough onto your prepared sheets. Bake for 10 minutes, and cool on a rack. Keep in sealed container.

These were slightly crunchy on the outside, but oh so soft and chewy in the center. Just the way a cookie should be I think!

If she is reading this, which I wouldn’t doubt, I am sorry it took me so long to get you your cookies. I am also sorry that you and Dad attempted to make your own and experienced your first recipe fail. I promise cookies are not as difficult as they seem!

      Quick oats are what should be used. This is an older post that I need to update. Hopefully you love the cookies!
