Oatmeal Cookies

I've been craving oatmeal cookies lately.  Must be the dusting of snow on the ground and the freezing cold wind outside!  These made the house smell wonderful and chased away the chill of the day.

Oatmeal Cookies
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup nuts or raisins
  • 3 1/4 cups rolled oats
*Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
*Cream butter and sugars.  Add in eggs and vanilla.  Beat well.
*Combine flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a separate bowl.  Beat into wet ingredients.
*Stir in nuts/raisins and oats.
*Drop by the tablespoon on greased cookie sheets or parchment paper.
*Bake for 12 to 18 minutes depending on if you like your cookies soft or crispy.

These cookies are quite sweet.  I'm going to experiment with decreasing the sugar next time I make them.  I'll update the recipe if I make any changes.  I made them with no nuts or raisins and they are a very good basic cookie.  The kids loved them.
