Oatmeal Maple Cookies

Recipe by Angelica Felts
READY IN: 20mins




  • Preheat your oven to about 375 degrees, Farenheit.
  • First, mix the flour and oatmeal in a medium-sized bowl.
  • Then, mix the butter and brown sugar in a smaller bowl.
  • You should do this by hand so that the butter softens.
  • After they have formed a nice, sweet, delectable slime, beat the egg in a measuring cup and add to the smaller bowl.
  • Mix these well.
  • After you have done this, add the wet ingredients to the bowl of dry ones.
  • Again, mix these well.
  • If it is too sticky (and it will be rather sticky no matter what-- this is a good thing), add a little more oatmeal.
  • But not flour.
  • We're done with the flour so using any more would ruin the integrity of the recipe.
  • I promise.
  • After it is about the right consistency, add a couple of drops of your maple extract.
  • When this is complete, use a couple of forks to form a ball in the bowl.
  • Then, on a lightly greased cookie sheet, use the forks to form little balls about an inch in diameter.
  • It might take a few cookie sheets, but I usually get about eighteen or twenty cookies.
  • You should leave each batch in for about 7-9 minutes, then let them cool on a counter or something of the like.
  • they will still look like they aren't done yet, but this is only because of the large amount of butter glistening in the dough.
  • After the cookies have cooled a few minutes, use a spatula to gently pry them from the pan.
  • Eat while warm, they are nice and buttery.
