Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

I am a cookie monster.  Ever since I was a wee little girl I loved cookies.  My favorite Sesame Street character was Cookie Monster well I did quite enjoy Oscar the Grouch a lot too.  “C is for cookie that’s good enough for me!”  Do you remember earlier this year when I posted chewy chocolate chip cookies and I told you about my first batch of cookies?  It was an important learning experience.  I have never made the same mistake twice thankfully 🙂

These cookies are chewy and loaded with flavor.  They are easy to make and not overloaded with other ingredients that take away from the wonderful oatmeal flavor.  If you enjoy raisins, nuts or chocolate chips in your oatmeal cookies you may add a cup of whatever you like.

Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

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 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3 cups quick cooking oats
1 cup raisins, chopped nuts or chocolate chips (optional)

To Prepare the Cookies

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, and cinnamon; stir into the creamed mixture. Mix in oats.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets. Roll the dough into walnut sized balls, and place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets. Flatten each cookie with the palm of your hand.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
