The Essential Soft Oatmeal Cookies (King Arthur Flour)

READY IN: 12mins
Recipe by Pardeemom

Shaped in a soft mound rather than a flattened cookie, this cookie not only has great flavor, but it's also wonderfully soft and tender. If your taste runs to melt-in-your-mouth crumbly - rather than chewy, crisp or crunchy - this one's for you.

did not love these. They were a bit too sweet and not oat mealy enough for me. They did bake up soft and cakey , I might try them again with a larger scoop and less sugar.
