IMG 2987.jpg

1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, softened (can leave at room temp an hour or microwave whole stick for 10 seconds – no more!)

1½ cups sugar

1 Tbsp vanilla

1 cup oats (just regular unflavored oatmeal)

4 Tbsp flour

1/3 tsp salt


Preheat Oven to 350.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (or spray with cooking spray).

In an electric mixer (or by hand) cream butter and sugar until well combined.

Mix in vanilla and add oats, flour, and salt and thoroughly combine.

Keep dough in the refrigerator until ready to bake. (up to a week covered)

Using a spoon to measure, roll dough into small balls and flatten slightly on the baking sheet keeping them about two inches apart.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until lightly browned.

Allow cookies to cool before removing. 

Makes about 24.
