I do not really have a sweet tooth. I just love a good salty treat. Most days what I really crave is some cheese and crackers. And some days I feel like a salt-lick would really hit the spot! Gross I know but I can't help it.
So you can imagine my surprise when all I wanted this week was a chewy cookie. Maybe it was all the depressing rain that we have had Chocolate chip was not going to cut it. I went old-school and baked oatmeal cookies. All-Recipes.com had a recipe that looked good so I gave it a whirl.
Soft Oatmeal Cookies
1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup granulated white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups flour (I always use unbleached flour)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
3 cups quick cooking oats
1 1/2 cups Craisins
These cookies were awesome and I will definitely make them again. They were just what I needed as a little rainy day pick me up! (Hubby's note- Two thumbs up for this recipe. These cookies were excellent.)
