Just a quick update…the baking today was a lot of fun and the cookies were so yummy (believe it or not, I only ate one!) My picture really does not do them justice…
I mentioned that I found them on Heather’s blog but they were from an older (older) post, so I thought I would just give you the recipe here. Enjoy!
Chewy Oatmeal Cookies
1 cup butter
2 cups brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 1/4 cups of flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
3 cups of quick oats
1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar for rolling and dusting.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Cream butter and sugar in your mixer until smooth; add eggs one at a time and and beat to combine. Add vanilla and beat 1 minute more. Sift flour, salt, soda, and baking powder together and beat on low speed. Add oatmeal and stir until just combined.
Using a large cookie scoop (1/4 cup) scoop level balls and roll in powdered sugar (confectioner’s or 10x sugar depending on where you hail from!). Place on cookie sheet 3 inches apart. Flatten slightly with a glass bottom dipped in powdered sugar. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until no longer shiny. Remove from cookie sheets – dust with more powdered sugar if you like!
