Brown Sugar Oatmeal Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 stick salted butter, softened
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 3 cups old-fashioned oats

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

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.

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.

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.

Let them cool slight on the pan after removing from the oven, then transfer the cookies onto a plate for serving.

* Note: Add 1/2 cup finely chopped nuts to the flour mixture if you'd like a nutty flavor and crunch.
