Oatmeal Cookies

dscf0660These are plain ‘ol oatmeal cookies.  No nuts, no raisens, no chocolate chips.  Feel free to add some or all of the above, as I sometimes do. Err on the side of under-baking these so they come out chewy rather than crispy…they don’t even need to brown. They are full of buttery goodness. These cookies spread alot so I chill the batter 15 minutes or so sometimes but it isn’t necessary. Original recipe from cupcakemuffin.

Oatmeal cookies

1 cup softened butter

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 egg

2 tsp. vanilla

1 +2/3 cups flour

3/4 tsp. baking soda

1/8 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

good dash of nutmeg

1+1/2 cups quick oats

Preheat oven to 350. Grease up some cookie sheets. You know the drill…cream butter with both sugars. Add egg and vanilla. Mix dry ingredients (except oats) and fully blend. Add oats by hand last along with any additions like nuts, chips or raisens.  Roll rounded teaspoon sized balls in your hands and flatten slightly. 12 per cookie sheet. 10 minutes.
