Servings 3 dozen

what you'll need

  • 1 stick unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats

let's do it

  • Move a rack to the center of the oven and preheat to 325 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper then set aside.
  • Cream butter and both sugars together until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, completely incorporating each egg before adding the next. Beat until everything is completely incorporated, scraping the sides of the bowl often.
  • Sift the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon over the wet ingredients and mix just until combined. Add the rolled oats then mix until completely incorporated.
  • Place rounded tablespoons of dough on the baking sheet. Bake 10−12 minutes or until just set (or just slightly underdone) in the center.
  • Remove from the oven, allow cookies to rest on the baking sheet 2 minutes then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

One Last Thing

Like raisins or dried fruit such as cranberries or cherries in your cookies? Go right ahead and add them in. About ¾ cup is perfect.
