oatmeal-brown sugar cookies recipe
Recipe type: desserts
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • ½ cup (about 115 g) butter, softened
  • ⅔ cup (125 g) dark brown sugar, packed
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup (95 g) all-purpose flour or whole-wheat pastry flour (1:1 sub is fine)
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • dash of nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1½ cups (120 g) old-fashioned oats
  • ¾ cup (120 g) golden raisins
  • ½ cup pecans (70 g), chopped (optional)
  1. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, egg and vanilla until smooth. In a another bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt together. Stir this into the butter/sugar mixture. Stir in the oats, raisins and pecans.
  2. Place bowl into fridge to chill for at least a couple of hours (overnight works). This ensures that your cookies will be thick when baking, rather than melting too quickly and flattening out.
  3. When ready to scoop, preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  4. Scoop (I used a smallish scooper) and set cookies about two inches apart on a parchment-lined or silicone-lined baking sheet. Bake them for 10 to 12 minutes; they are done when edges are golden.
  5. Allow them sit on the baking sheet for five minutes before transferring each to a rack to cool. I like to make mini ice cream sandwiches with these cookies, hazelnut ice cream my absolute favorite choice.
