Soft Oatmeal Cookies

"Shaped in a soft mound rather than a flattened round. This recipe taken from the King Arthur Flour Cookie Companion is wonderfully soft and tender."

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F Lightly grease ( or line with parchment) two baking sheets.
  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter, oil and sugar. Add the egg, beating until fluffy, then beat in the sour cream and vanilla. Stir in the currants and oats.
  • In a seperate bowl, mix together the baking soda, cinnamon, salt and flour. Add this mixture a cup at a time to the oat mixture, beating well after each addition. Stir in the nuts. Let the dough rest for 30 minutes.
  • Using a medium cookie scoop drop the dough onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake the cookies for 12 minutes or until they're light brown. Remove them from the oven and transfer to a rack to cool.

    True to the name, these were really soft oatmeal cookies. Very different from the oatmeal cookie recipe I usually make. I love that they aren't loaded with sugar. I think I would add a little more cinnamon next time. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    These cookies are so moist and soft! I substituted whole wheat flour for the all-purpose flour and almonds for the walnuts. The amount of cinnamon is perfect. I made these for my mother for Christmas, and she absolutely loved them! Cookies need to be refrigerated if not eaten within a week. Also, they freeze really well in sandwich bags (three cookies per baggie) wrapped in aluminum foil. Thank you Grandpa & Grandma Williams!

    These cookies are Great! And I love the fact that they only have one cup of sugar in them. I substituted raisins for the currents, they added extra sweetness and the cookies were a great success!
