Soft Oatmeal Cookies


Yields1 Serving



Sweet And Savory

There’s nothing quite like a warm, soft oatmeal cookie straight out of the oven. With the incomparable aroma, the perfect balance of sweet and savory spices, and the melt-in-your-mouth texture, It’s no wonder that oatmeal cookies are one of America’s favorite cookies! And while they may seem like a simple treat, a lot goes into making the perfect oatmeal cookie.

First, you need to start with the proper oats. Old-fashioned rolled oats are best – they provide just the right amount of chewiness. Next, you need to add the perfect mix of spices. A blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves is traditional, but feel free to experiment with other herbs like ginger or cardamom. Finding a harmony that enhances the taste of the oats without overwhelming them is the key. Finally, you must select the proper sugar. White sugar will produce a lighter cookie, while brown sugar will give your cookies a richer flavor. Again, it’s all about finding what you like best.

Once you’ve sorted your ingredients, it’s time to get baking! The key to perfectly soft oatmeal cookies is not to overbake them. Pull them out of the oven just as they’re starting to turn golden brown around the edges – they may look underdone, but trust us, they’ll continue cooking as they cool. Before moving them to a wire rack to complete cooling, allow them to cool on the baking sheet for a short while. And there you have it – soft, delicious oatmeal cookies that are sure to please!
