Directions for: Brown Sugar Oatmeal Cookies


2 cups packed dark brown sugar

1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter, softened

2 tsp vanilla extract

2 eggs

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp salt

½ tsp baking soda

3 cups old-fashioned oats


1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

2. In the bowl of an electric mixer (or using a hand mixer), beat together the brown sugar and butter until fluffy. Beat in the vanilla. Add the eggs one at a time, scraping the bowl after each one.

3. Mix together the flour, salt and baking soda in a medium bowl. Add it into the creamed mixture in 2 to 3 batches, mixing until just combined. Mix in the oats until just combined.

4. Use your preferred size cookie scoop (or a regular spoon) to drop portions of dough onto baking sheets, spacing them a couple inches apart. Bake until dark and chewy, 12 to 13 minutes. If you'd like a crispier cookie, just cook a little longer!

5. Let the cookies cool slightly on the baking sheets, then transfer onto a plate for serving.
