Old Fashioned Oatmeal Cookies With Vanilla And Cinnamon: A Classic Recipe for the Ages
When it comes to cookies, there’s nothing quite like the classic taste and texture of old-fashioned oatmeal cookies. The combination of the warm, comforting flavors of cinnamon and vanilla with the hearty texture of rolled oats is a match made in dessert heaven. And while there are countless variations of oatmeal cookie recipes out there, this one stands out for its simplicity and deliciousness.
This recipe calls for just a handful of simple ingredients that you likely already have on hand in your pantry and fridge. With a prep time of just 15 minutes and a cook time of 10 minutes, these cookies come together quickly and easily. And with a yield of four dozen cookies, there’s plenty to share with friends and family (if you can bring yourself to part with them!).
To start, you’ll cream together softened unsalted butter with both light brown sugar and granulated sugar until the mixture is smooth. Then, beat in two large eggs and a tablespoon of vanilla extract for added depth of flavor. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined. Add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture and blend together thoroughly before stirring in the oats.
Chilling the batter for 20 minutes is optional, but it can help to enhance the texture of the cookies. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and prepare your baking sheet by greasing it, using non-stick foil, parchment paper, or a Silpat liner. With a teaspoon or small ice cream scooper, place a rounded teaspoon of cookie dough on the prepared baking sheet, allowing room for the cookies to spread.
Bake the cookies for approximately 10 minutes, or until they are still slightly wet in the center. As they cool, the cookies will flatten, creating a crispy outside and chewy inside. The aroma of cinnamon and vanilla will fill your kitchen, making it hard to resist sneaking a cookie (or two) before they’ve had a chance to cool completely.
Whether you’re looking for a comforting treat to enjoy with a cup of tea or coffee, a lunchbox snack for your kids, or a homemade gift for a loved one, these old-fashioned oatmeal cookies with vanilla and cinnamon are a classic choice that will never go out of style. So preheat your oven, gather your ingredients, and get ready to bake up a batch of these irresistible cookies. Your taste buds will thank you!
