Salty Oatmeal Cookies

Recipe by Binxi
READY IN: 30mins
YIELD: 24 cookies




  • Preheat oven to 375 (rack on the 2nd position from top).
  • Slice "cold" unsalted butter into small pieces and whip in your mixer for a minute or so. Because it's cold it will stick a bit, but don't fret -- scrape and mix.
  • Add both sugars, baking powder, baking soda and the cinnamon. With mixer combine at medium speed until the mixture has a crumbly texture.
  • Add the eggs and vanilla and mix again until combined.
  • With mixer on low speed, slowly add flour. If your mixer sounds like it's over-working, you may have to continue by hand and use a spoon.
  • DON'T OVER MIX or cookies will get tough!
  • Gently fold in the oats, and optional add-ins of chocolate chips or raisins.
  • Chill the dough for at least an hour.
  • Drop dough by the heaping tablespoon onto cookie sheet.
  • "Lightly" sprinkle cookies with Kosher salt.
  • Bake on 2nd rack from top at 375 for 12-15 minutes. (Cookies should still be soft to the touch).
  • Carefully transfer them to a cooling rack and enjoy!
