Chopped walnuts add a nice crunch to this basic oatmeal cookie recipe.
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick), softened
1 1/4 cups oatmeal
3 tablespoons whole milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 375° F. Lightly coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the brown sugar and butter until well blended. Add the oatmeal, egg, and milk, stirring well. In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt. Gradually add to the oatmeal mixture, stirring well. Stir in the walnuts, raisins, and vanilla. Drop the dough by tablespoonfuls, spaced about 1 inch apart, onto the baking sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool. Repeat with the remaining dough.
I tried this recipe for making Old Fashion Oatmeal Cookies, along with the Quaker Oats recipe to see what the difference was and a little of this and that, I made a perfect golden brown batch. I didn't use any of the extras like pecan or walnut just plain old fashion, but next time I will add peanut butter or raisins.
I followed this recipe exactly... the cookies were very flour-y not traditional oatmeal cookies at all.. I made these just for fun and several people said they weren't good... when compared to other recipes this one was missing so many key ingredients. Just a bad recipe I wouldn't recommend at all.
AWESOME! Looove them! :) I used Smart Balance butter, skim milk instead of whole milk, nutmeg instead of cloves, and for the flour I followed one of the recommendations on the reviews and sub-ed in a half cup of oatmeal (great texture!). I cooked them for 10-12 mins, a little longer to make them a little more crispy.
Would definitely make these again, maybe even adding chocolate chips! :)
Very good cookie recipe and very easy. I omitted the raisins and added chocolate chips instead. Hubby loved them. Next time I'll bake them a couple minutes longer as 10 minutes left the cookies a bit too soft and delicate.
