Brown Sugar Oatmeal Cookies

  • 1 cup salted butter, softened
  • 2 cups packed dark brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1-1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.


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

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

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

Let them cool slight on the pan after removing from the oven, then transfer the cookies onto a plate for serving.
