Brown Sugar Oatmeal Cookies
Recipe type: Cookie
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 3 Dozen
  • 1 Cup Salted Butter, Softened
  • 2 Cups Packed Dark Brown Sugar
  • 2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Whole Eggs
  • 1-1/2 Cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • ½ Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 3 Cups Old Fashioned Oats
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer (or using a hand mixer) beat together the butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, scraping the bowl after each one.
  3. Mix together the flour, salt, and baking soda in a medium sized bowl. Add it into the creamed mixture in 2 to 3 batches, mixing it until just combined. Mix in the oats until just combined.
  4. Use your preferred size cookie scoop (or a regular spoon) to drop portions of dough onto a lightly greased cookie sheet, spacing them a couple inches apart. Bake for 12-13 minutes or until dark and chewy. If you'd like a crispier cookie, just cook a little longer!
  5. Let them cool slight on the pan after removing from the oven, then transfer the cookies onto a plate for serving.
  6. Add ½ cup finely chopped nuts to the flour mixture if you'd like a nutty flavor and crunch.
If you are like me and normally only have unsalted butter on hand, please use it and just add ¼ teaspoon for every stick of butter used.
