I’ve been craving sweets (I think its the PMS) so I decided to try Daddy’s Oatmeal Cookies from Bride & Groom First and Forever Cookbook. The recipe is a favorite of the daddy of the authors of this book. They are delicious!! Jason & I (and our co-workers) are really enjoying them! Here’s the recipe:
2 c all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon kosher salt (all I had was normal & they were still good)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 eggs at room temperature
2 tsps vanilla extract
1 c (2 sticks) unsalted butter at room temperature
2 c firmly packed light brown sugar
2 c rolled oats or quick-cooking oaks
1 c raisins (I don’t like so I left out)
Position rack in center of oven and preheat at 350. Spray 2 or more cookie sheets with cooking spray or line with parchment paper.
Stir together the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Set aside.
Stir together the eggs and vanilla in a small bowl. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and brown sugar on medium speed until creamy and blended. Alternatively, use a electric hand mixer. (What I did b/c I don’t have a KA mixer) Add the egg mixture to the butter mixture in two additions and beat until incorporated. Scrape down the sides of the bowl after each addition. Reduce the speed to low, slowly add the dry ingredients, and beat until just incorporated. Scrape down the sides if necessary. Stir in the oatmeal (and raisins).
Drop rounded tablespoons of dough about 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets.
Bake until the edges of the cookies are golden and the centers are barely cooked, about 10 mins.
Let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for 2-3 mins, then transfer the cookies to wire racks and let cool completely.
I found that 10 mins wasn’t quite enough so I cooked them for 12-13 mins, but we like cookies soft & chewy. Enjoy!
