Oatmeal Cookies

This is my very favourite recipe for Oatmeal cookies. Try it out and you’ll see.  They are especially lovely with coffee or milk.

Combine:

  • 2 cups of brown sugar
  • 1 cup of butter

Beat well, either by hand or by electric stand mixer.  Add to the mixture:

  • 1/2 cup milk with 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 4 cups of rolled oats
  • 1 3/4 cups of flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 375 F.

You can either spoon the cookies dough onto a baking sheet, or you can roll the dough into a log using wax paper and then chill it for an hour and slice it into 1/2 inch slices.

Bake for 8 minutes.  The bottoms should be just turning brown, and the cookies will seem like they aren’t quite done.  Carefully lift them onto a cooling rack with a thin cookie  lifter.  In a few minutes, they’ll be perfectly firm and still soft if you get it just right.
