About this Recipe

The best oatmeal cookies have a perfect balance of crispy edges and soft, chewy centers. Look no further. This recipe is extremely versatile because you can add ANY “inclusions” you like. Use raisins for traditional oatmeal raisin cookies. Use pecans, almonds or walnuts if you prefer nutty oatmeal cookies. If you’re feeling adventurous, use some chocolate chips, M&M’s® candies or peanut butter chips. The options are endless; you’re limited only by your imagination. My personal favorite is Oatmeal-Pecan cookies.

  1. 1

    Prep cookie dough

    • Pro Tip: Leave butter and eggs at room temperature for 1 hour before beginning. This will soften the butter for easy mixing and ensure more even distribution of eggs in the dough.
    • In medium bowl, stir together flour, cinnamon, baking soda, kosher salt and nutmeg, if using.
    • In bowl of stand mixer with paddle attachment or large bowl with electric hand mixer or wooden spoon, combine butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar; mix until creamy and well incorporated.
    • Add egg and vanilla; mix well.
    • Add flour mixture; mix well.
    • Add oats, raisins, nuts or chocolate chips and mix well; continue to mix for 30 seconds to thoroughly blend dough.
