Naked Oatmeal Cookies


There is no better cookie than the oatmeal cookie. I’m not sure why, at some point in history, the oatmeal cookie was relegated to the raisin division and was banned from being served straight up or with chocolate chips.

In my books though, this is the greatest cookie by a long shot. Just sweet enough, just salty enough, just the perfect texture. And the kids are generally scared enough of the oatmeal I can keep the whole batch for myself.



Oatmeal Cookies


1 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup all-purpose flour


  1. Heat oven to 375.
  2. In a large bowl combine all ingredients except flour. Beat at low speed until well mixed. Do not over mix!
  3. Stir in flour. Drop by even tablespoons onto a greased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.
