Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

We are in the middle of an ice storm. Not much to do indoors or out. I’m trying to stay in front of the wood stove to keep warm. My problem is I’m craving something sweet. What better way to satisfy a sweet craving than cookies. 

My Man must have had a sweet craving, too, because he stopped by the store and bought some oatmeal cookies. They tasted okay, but they are hard as a rock. I decided to make some chewy ones. 

I found a recipe in the internet and tweak it some. Much better! 

I do apologize for the picture quality. It is a very cloudy and dark day and that makes lighting horrible. 

Chewy oatmeal

Whatcha Need

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks)
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 cups quick cooking oats

Putting It All Together

In a mixing bowl beat

IMG_9936until creamy. 

IMG_9938The spinning mixer was making me dizzy. 

IMG_9940Add the oats, 


IMG_9943baking soda,

IMG_9946and salt. Stir into moisten mixture. 

Mine seemed dry. I couldn’t figure out why. 

IMG_9947Them I remembered the egg. The egg should have been added with the sugars, milk, butter and vanilla. 

IMG_9948Stir it all together until well moistened.

IMG_9950Drop by spoonfuls onto a greased baking pan. Bake for 8-10 minutes at 375 degrees.

IMG_9955Let cool about 2 minutes on pan then cool completely on a wire rack.

      Glad you like them, Karen. I need to go back and add the printable directions to most of them. Good project for a snow day! It does make it easier. If he were still at Georgia Poultry, he would be at work right now.

    Re your comment on my post “The Love that Leaves Us Breathless,” Jayne, It’s so true, and I’m sure it is tumbling off you to your grown kids and your man, friend.
