One of my favorite oatmeal cookie recipes, I sometimes like to use a mixture of butterscotch and chocolate baking chips --- these cookies are very good!
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 1⁄2 cups brown sugar, packed
- 2 teaspoons maple extract (or use vanilla)
- 2 large eggs
- 1 1⁄4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 3 cups quick-cooking oats
- 1 1⁄2 cups butterscotch chips or 1 1⁄2 cups chocolate chips
- Set oven to 350 degrees F.
- Generoulsy grease cookie sheet/s.
- In a large bowl mix together the butter with brown sugar, maple extract and eggs; beat using an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy and no sugar granules remain (about 3 minutes).
- In a bowl combine the flour with baking soda and salt; add to the creamed mixture and beat until just combined.
- Stir in the oats until combined (the batter will be thick).
- Mix in nuts or baking chips (if using).
- Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls onto greased cooking sheet spacing about 2-inches apart.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly golden (do not overbake).
- Cool for 2-3 minutes then remove to rack to cool completely.
I've made the recipe twice now and it's a definate keeper. I baked the cookies for 8 minutes and they came out nice and chewy. Will definately make again. Thank you!
