Delicious Oatmeal Cookies


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3 cups rolled oats


  1. In a medium bowl, cream together butter and sugars. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla. Sieve flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon into the creamed mixture and stir. Mix in oats. Cover, and chill dough for at least one hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 190°C. Line cookie sheets with baking paper. Roll the dough into walnut sized balls, and place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets. Flatten each cookie slightly with a large fork. The softer you want the cookie, the less you flatten it.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.


Before chilling, divide the mixture into three bowls. To the first add about a cup of chocolate chips, to the second add about a cup of raisins and to the third add about half a cup of dried cranberries and half a cup of chopped walnuts. Delicious!
