Brown Sugar Oatmeal cookies

Oatmeal cookies seem to be a popular sort of cookie for Americans, but they're not something that seems to have taken off in Australia, beyond ANZAC cookies. And I must admit that these do sort of taste and look like ANZAC cookies, and are just as disliked by the fussy children in the this house.

I stumbled on this recipe from The Pioneer Woman when I went to pinterest and search "oatmeal cookies". Looking at all that buttery sugary goodness made me want to add it to my repertoire. But fussy kids win, and I sent half the cookies home with Caitlin, and devoured the rest myself.

250g butter, softened
2 cups dark brown sugar
2tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1 & 1/2 cups plain flour
1/2tsp bicarb soda
3 cups rolled oats

* cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy
* add vanilla and eggs, mix well
* add flour and bicarb, mix well
* add oats, mix well
* place spoons full onto lined tray
* bake 180°C 12-14min
* allow to cool slightly on tray before moving to wire rack to cool completely



  1. And they are yummy and the kids love them too... they requested the recipe but I said it'd be up soon.

  2. They look delicious, what's not to like?!

  3. We like oatmeal cookies here - with chocolate chips, not raisins! :)
