Soft Oatmeal Cookies

in #food4 years ago

These oatmeal cookies are delectable AND they actually stay soft and chewy!  They are my personal favorite...


Makes 3-5 dozen cookies, depending on the size you make them.

  • 1 cup Butter, softened
  • 1 cup White Sugar 
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar, packed 
  • 2 Eggs 
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract 
  • 2 cups All-purpose Flour 
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda 
  • 1 teaspoon Salt 
  • 1.5 teaspoons Cinnamon 
  • 3 cups Quick Cooking Oats
  • Raisins or Nuts (optional) 


  1. In medium bowl, cream together white sugar, butter, and brown sugar. 
  2. Beat in eggs, one at a time.
  3. Stir in vanilla.
  4. In large bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda,and salt. 
  5. Stir flour mixture into the creamed mixture. 
  6. Mix in oats. *If you are using nuts or raisins, mix into dough at this point, combining well. Cover and chill dough for at least one hour.
  7. Preheat the oven to 375° F. 
  8. Using greased or non-stick cookie sheets, roll dough into balls and place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets.
  9. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.  *10-13 minutes if using nuts or raisins.
  10. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.


  • For a healthier dough mix, you can swap wheat flour for the all-purpose flour.
  • Chocolate chips can also be added to this recipe, if you desire (does not require the dough to be chilled or additional cooking time).

Hello there Sweet Yummy Tooth, I'm Oatmeal Joey Arnold, and I love these oatmeal cookies so much and started eating cookies as a young Oregonian boy in the 90's in Oregon. Yummy like peanut butter cookies.
