TOTAL TIME

Ingredients

3 cups uncooked quick-cooking oats

2 cups firmly packed brown sugar

1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 375°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine all ingredients except flour in bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Stir in flour until well mixed.

  3. STEP 3

    Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake 8-12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Let stand 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet.

Tip #1

- Stir in 1 cup of 1 of the following ingredients: mini real semi-sweet chocolate chips, raisins, chopped mixed dried fruit, sweetened flaked coconut or chopped pecans. Bake as directed above.

Tip #2

- Dough is best when baked the day it is made. If dough is stored in the refrigerator, the oats absorb liquid and cause the cookies to be dry.

Tip #3

Variation: Chocolate Drizzled Oatmeal Cookies:
Prepare and bake cookies as directed above. Melt 1/2 cup real semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon shortening. Drizzle mixture over cooled cookies.

Very chewy and delicious. I made this recipe exactly but cut all the ingredients in half and added a dash of cinnamon and they came out perfectly. I baked in my electronic stove at 375 for 11 minutes and they were chewy with a slight crunch on bottom. My cookies were plump and not flat at all. Will definitely make again.

This was an easy recipe to make. I found it to be slightly sweeter than I was expecting. Also, the bake time and oven temperature needs adjusting.

I would bake this at 350 for 10 minutes. Baking at 375 burns the edges and bottoms of these cookies.

Really wanted to like these and I added lots of fruit and nuts. However, not nearly as good as others. So disappointed.

Hello there. My girlfriend and I tried this recipe off of a Google recommendation because I was too lazy to dig out her cookbook. Lol, anyway after making these cookies with all new ingredients the cookies came out flat and not very tasteful. We tried to bring ourselves to not waste the rest of the dough, but after a second attempt... we would simply like to be reimbursed for the butter. #thesecookiessuck!
