Soft Chocolate-Almond Oatmeal Cookies

Recipe by Torrig
READY IN: 1hr 3mins
YIELD: 45 cookies




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees, line three cookie sheets with parchment or nonstick baking liners.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the oats, flour, baking soda, and salt. Whisk until well blended.
  • In another large bowl combine the brown sugar and butter, beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until well combined. Add the eggs and vanilla and almond extracts and beat until well combined.
  • Pour in half of the dry ingredients and mix on low speed just until blended. Add the milk and mix until just blended. Pour in the remaining flour mixture and mix until just blended. Add the nuts and mix briefly to combine.
  • Shape the dough unto 1.5 in balls. Arrange the mounds on the cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart. Lightly dampen your fingertips and slightly flatten each mound, so they're about .5 inches thick.
  • Bake one sheet at a time on the middle rack until the cookies are puffed and still moist-looking on top, about 11 minutes.
