Total Time


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 extract

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.

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.

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.
