Mama’s Oatmeal Cookies
These cookies have been a favorite for a long time (especially for my dad and brother, Joe)! Israel and I had a cookie baking day today in our new kitchen and we had to make some of these!
Makes 3 dozen cookies
1 C. butter (softened)
1 C. brown sugar
1 C. white sugar
a splash of vanilla or almond extract
1 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
2 C. flour
3 C. oats (quick oats or rolled oats)
Mix all ingredients together. Form into balls and place on greased cookie sheet. Press ball of dough down a little on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 min. Let sit 5-10 min. Enjoy!
Note: You can also freeze this dough and bake later! Just divide into thirds, place in gallon ziplock bag and smoosh into a log shape at the bottom of the bag (width should be slightly smaller that the size you want your cookies to be). Roll bag around cookie log and place in freezer. When you’re ready to bake, just peel the bag off, slice, place rounds on cookie sheet and bake! (You will need to bake a little longer since dough is frozen.)
