I found this recipe from Andy Chef. I've tried several oatmeal cookie recipes, and this one is the best. These cookies are not too dry, not too hard, crispy on the outside, and softy in the middle. It sounds like lots of work but is pretty easy to make. This is a delicious base recipe you can change as you want (e.g., add raisin or cocoa).
- 85g Brown sugar
- 170g White sugar
- 2 small (one big) Eggs
- 180g Butter
- 205g Flour
- 8g Baking powder
- 300g Quick-cooking oats
- 100g Mini chocolate chips
How to make it
First, mix up the dough
- Cream together white and brown sugar (it adds sweet flavor) with softened butter. Then, add eggs and vanilla and whisk until smooth (Beat in eggs one at a time, until well combined).
- Add flour, oats, chocolate chips and baking powder. Mix it again.
- Fold in the chocolate chips!
Then, roll it out
Roll dough into balls (take a piece of dough the size of a walnut). Place cookies on baking paper with a distance of 1 cm between them.
Bake in the preheated oven at 165°C (330°F) for 12-15 minutes (or until lightly browned on the sides).
I'll tell you a little secret. I divide the dough into two parts and add two teaspoons of cocoa to one of them, so you can bake two types of cookies and choose the one you like more.
I don't know how long cookies stay fresh covered at room temperature, because my family members eat this cookies in one sitting.
- It would be best if you used quick-cooking oats. The longer it takes to cook, the crispier the cookies will be.
- You can also add to cookies: marshmallow, cocoa, cinnamon and nutmeg, coconut flakes, dried fruits and berries, poppy or sesame, orange peel.
