Becky has spent her entire career cooking and baking, which are also her favorite hobbies outside of work. For her, time spent in the kitchen not only relieves stress, but is lots of fun as well. Becky’s love for baking began as a child, standing on a chair next her mom, adding ingredients and mixing up dough.

Oatmeal brown sugar drop cookies are an old-fashioned favorite for all.
Heat oven to 375°F. Combine brown sugar, butter and egg in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add all remaining cookie ingredients; beat at low speed until well mixed. Stir in chocolate pieces.
Drop dough by tablespoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 10-14 minutes or until light golden brown on edges. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely.
*Substitute raisins, cut-up gumdrops, chopped nuts, chocolate, butterscotch or vanilla chips.

I substituted chopped, toasted walnuts for the candy-coated milk chocolate pieces and added 1 1/2 tsp. of pure vanilla extract. I flattened the cookies a bit with a fork dipped in warm water, and they spread out nicely. These cookies have become a favorite recipe with my family and friends.
These are so yummy! I made them without putting any chocolates in the batch and they still tasted excellent.
These cookies were tasty. They were just sweet enough, without being too sweet. I also had a problem with the baking, they didn't spread out flat but just remained like little mounds. Overall, its a good recipe.
I keep this dough in the freezer as Becky suggests - and my kids love them. Love having the option of stirring in different goodies!
wouldn't change a thing
the recipe said drop.. but when i cooked them they didnt spread very much at all..
