Oatmeal Cookies

These are my favorite oatmeal cookies and Rebecca and I are planning on making them later today.

Oatmeal Cookies
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
3 cups quick oats

Additions: 2 tsp. cinnamon, 1 cup craisins (this is what makes the cookies SO GOOD)

Mix together and drop about table spoon balls on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 F for about 10-11 minutes. Do not over bake, you want them to be chewy, not crunchy. Enjoy!

What is your favorite thing to add to a basic oatmeal cookie recipe?

(I know that I am a day late on this recipe, but I'm on summer schedules!)


  1. Mmmm, these sound delightful! I will have to try them sometime!


  2. one of my favorite additions is dried cranberries and grated orange rind.

  3. M&M's, Chocolate chips and butterscotch chips. sweet tooth is pretty obvious. I actually made like 8 dozen "monster cookies" last night for the monster party (and for our neighbors. YUM.
