Oatmeal Cookies

We surprised even ourselves when we made the oatmeal cookie dough ahead of time and chilled it overnight before our photo shoot. What happened? The cookies barely spread out at all when we baked them!

Oatmeal Cookies

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl beat butter and shortening with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour and the oats. If desired, stir in the 1 cup desired stir-Ins.
  2. Drop dough by rounded teaspoons or tablespoons (or by a 1/4-cup measure or cookie scoop) 2 to 3 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake until lightly browned and centers appear set. (Allow 8 to 10 minutes for rounded teaspoons or tablespoons or 12 to 14 minutes for 1/4-cup or cookie-scoop portions.) Cool on cookie sheets for 2 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack; cool.
