I don't remember where I got this from - but they are nummy!!!


Oatmeal Chocolate-Chip Cookies
Yields 18 large cookies

1 1/2 cups FLOUR
1/2 teaspoon SALT
1/2 teaspoon BAKING POWDER
8 ounces (2 sticks) UNSALTED BUTTER, softened
1 cup LIGHT BROWN SUGAR, packed
2 large EGGS
3 cups OATS

1. Preaheat oven to 350 degrees, and line two large cookie sheets with parchment paper.

2. Whisk flour, salt and baking powder together in a medium bowl.

3. In a separate bowl, by hand or by mixer, beat butter until creamy. Add sugars and beat the mixture until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in eggs one at a time.

4. Stir dry ingredients into butter-sugar mixture with a wooden spoon or a large rubber spatula. Stir in oats and chocolate chips.

5. Place dough onto parchment-lined cookie sheets by large spoonfuls (about 2 tablespoons each), leaving at least 2 inches between.

6. Bake until cookie edges turn golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Slide cookies (on parchment) onto cooling rack. Let cool, and store in airtight container.

I love these cookies.. they are my absolute favorites and everyone loves them!They are Oatmeal spice.. and dang you -now I have to go make them!

1 cup flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup raisins (optional - I leave them out most of the time)
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups old fashioned oats

In a bowl mix the above ingredients using your hands to thoroughly blend the mix.

Then add:
3/4 cup butter or margarine softened
1 egg slightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla

Mix until completely blended. You will need to use your hands to finish mixing. Shape into balls the size of walnuts. Place 2 inches apart on greased baking sheets. Bake 350 degrees for 11-13 minutes (until edges are lightly browned). Cool on baking sheet about 5 minutes. Makes 3 dozen cookies.


Mmmmm, I want to make Jan's cookies - oatmeal *and* cherries - yum!

Hey Sharon,

I was just out at my stamping night two weeks ago and someone brought these. Delicious and easy.

Beat in egg and zest from one orange.

In a separate bowl mix together:

No link, but here's my Gram's Oatmeal Cookie recipe. I love it because I have here handwritten recipe card she made just for me and because they are just so darn good.

Oatmeal Cookies

1 - cup margarine
1 - cup brown sugar
1 - cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 tablespoons milk
2 - cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 - cups uncooked quick rolled oats
3/4 cup raisins, more or less to taste

Cream margarine and sugars.
Combine beaten eggs, vanilla and milk.
Add to butter and sugar mixture, beat until smooth. (See note below.)
Sift together flour, soda and baking powder and salt. (This is my grandmother's hand-written recipe and while she includes salt in the instructions she does not list salt with the ingredients. I never use salt and love the recipe. I also love this quirky detail from her hand written recipe card.)
Add to butter mixture gradually. (Another quirk - she calls for margarine in ingredients and lists butter here. I always use margarine.)
When smooth, add oats then raisins. Beat mixture well.
Drop cookies by a teaspoon, 2 inches apart, on a well greased cookie sheet.
Bake until light brown. "Cookies are slightly less cooked than most peoples, that's why they stay so soft." (Again, love the quirky.)
Cook 13 minutes at 350 degree oven. The recipe card says: "Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees or slightly less. I tried 12 minutes and 15 minutes. We liked in between time. 13 minutes. Test them to your liking."


i just make the vanishing oatmeal cookies off the lid to the quaker oats. in fact, i just made them tonight with craisins, pecans and mini chocolate chips...woowee they were good!

I love the Quaker Oats recipe:

Sara K.

These are a permanent staple in our house; the hubby won't go to work without them in his lunch. I've tried to go with other types of cookies, but I always get "where are my Oatmeal Cookies?" so I always return to these. They are good, if I may say so myself...


2 sticks butter
1 c. brown sugar
½ c. white sugar
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla
1 ½ c. flour
1 t. baking soda
½ t. salt
1 t. cinnamon
3 c. quick oatmeal
½ pkg. Butterscotch chips

350° 12-15 minutes (my oven usually takes 15 minutes) You don’t want them to be completely browned, almost a touch under-done and then leave them on the pan for a little while. This makes for a nice, chewy cookie.


Kathy has a recipe, she says is the best oatmeal cookie. from Rita S. I belive it has boiling water you put in it.......? I'll call and get the recipie for you.
