Here is the recipe

Ingredients:Oatmeal Cookies:

3/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature

1 cup packed light brown sugar

1 large egg


1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

3/4 cup all purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats

Oatmeal Cookies: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F,In the bowl of your electric mixer (or with a hand mixer), beat the butter and sugar until creamy and smooth (about 2 - 3 minutes).



Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat to combine.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt,. Add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture and beat until incorporated. Stir in the oats.

For large cookies, use 1/4 cup of batter (I like to use an ice cream scoop) and space the cookies about 2 inches (5 cm) apart on the baking sheet.

Then wet your hand and flatten the cookies slightly with your fingers so they are about 1/2 inch (1.25 cm) thick.Bake the cookies for about 12 - 15 minutes or until light golden brown around the edges but still soft and a little wet in the centers. Remove from oven and let the cookies cool a few minutes on the baking sheet before transferring them to a wire rack to cool.



Makes about 20 - 24 large cookies

Hope you'll enjoy!!!
