I chose these as a last-minute addition to my Thanskgiving 2015 menu after seeing a recipe online and remembering that a friend had never tried maple syrup before. Turns out, they were even more popular than the store-bought dessert and went like hotcakes! Even my significant other, who doesn't like maple syrup and isn't a big fan of oatmeal, couldn't stop eating them! I found the original oatmeal amount a bit much, so I've reduced it here. I also found these cookies were better the day after being baked. I also left the batter to sit in the fridge overnight, although the original recipes says to let it sit for at least 3 hours to allow the oatmeal to soften up and absorb the flavors.

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together melted butter, brown sugar, maple syrup, and vanilla. Let butter cool for 1 minute, then whisk in egg. Add dry ingredients to bowl and stir until combined. Stir in oats. Press plastic wrap over dough in bowl and let chill in refrigerator from 3 hours to overnight to allow oats to soften up and soak up flavors.
  3. Place oven racks in upper and lower thirds of oven. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Drop dough by rounded tablespoon onto prepared baking sheet. Bake until almost golden, about 13-15. Let cool on sheet for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling. Cookies can be stored in a sealed container at room temperature for up to a week.
