“Tracie A. 26 Feb★★★★★I ADORE this recipe! It is easy to make and the results are Fabulous!!! You can get the perfect balance of chewy center and slightly crunchy edge. ( At least the way I bake them) I do not like chocolate so I add toffee chips for me and chocolate chips for my family sometimes.” -Yummly

Old Fashioned Oatmeal Cookies With Vanilla And Cinnamon

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 4 dozen
Author Stasia Wimmer


  • 1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks), softened
  • 1 cup light brown sugar , firmly packed
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp table salt
  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats


  1. Cream butter and sugars until smooth, beat in eggs and vanilla.
  2. In a separate bowl add flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix ingredients together until well combined.
  3. Add flour mixture into creamed mixture and blend together thoroughly.
  4. Stir in oats.
  5. Chill batter for 20 minutes (optional). Preheat oven to 375 degrees and prepare your baking sheet. Grease baking sheet, or use nonstick foil, parchment paper, or a Silpat liner.
  6. With a teaspoon or a small ice cream scooper, place rounded teaspoonfuls of cookie dough on prepared baking sheet, allowing room to spread.
  7. Bake for approximately 10 minutes, pulling cookies out when they are still slightly wet in the center. They will look fluffy while baking and flatten once cooled, creating a crispy outside and chewy inside.
