1 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. sugar
1-1/2 c. brown sugar [packed]
1-2 teaspoons vanilla
2 c. flour
3 c. oats [I've used regular & quick cooking, both work just fine!]
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Mix sugars, eggs, butter & vanilla, until thoroughly blended.
In a seperate bowl, mix the dry ingredients together.
Then mix it all together.
I used a large cookie scoop & dropped dough balls [about the size of a golf ball] on the parchment paper lined cookie sheets [2 inches apart]. Using a fork, I flattened the balls. [shown below]
I bake these cookies for 7 minutes. When I take them out of the oven, they look undercooked! [pictured below] However, once they cool completely, they turn out perfect! They are so soft & chewy!
I let them cool for a minute or two on the cookie sheet, then carefully transfer them to a cooling rack. They'll harden as they cool.
Pour yourself a glass of milk & enjoy them while they last!
