The perfect oatmeal cookie…


I don’t know about you, but when the cool weather rolls in, I yearn for homemade treats.

And when I’m wishing I was back in New York, taking pictures, I distract myself by baking.



But not just any cookies. Oatmeal cookies.

They can’t be too soft or too doughy or too hard. They must be thin and light and buttery and crispy and chewy. A tall order for sure.

And I tried many a recipe until I found the perfect one. And if you’ve ever had the same problem, I will share it with you.

You can whip up a batch in no time at all — and even feel somewhat smug that they contain whole grains and aren’t as unhealthy as many other cookies. I also add a bit of ground flaxseed to the mix, which makes the cookies even more wholesome.

Get the recipe here.

And if you’re ever in need of distraction, give them a try.

  1. This is so beautifully presented Sherry. Aunt Shirley told me she made these cookies today so I will be trying them tomorrow. Thank you

  2. Well, they certainly look wonderful! And since oatmeal raisin is my husband’s favorite cookie, I’ve printed the recipe. Yes, something about cooler weather that brings out the carb craving and the baker in me. {She’s buried deep.}

  3. Any cookie is my favorite when it is too soft and too doughy! I under bake most cookies and bars, just to have the extra softness…they seem to be more flavorful to me. I love how you made a very tall stack of cookies! Yes, the weather is just right for a little kitchen time.

  4. that is just how I like my oatmeal cookies as well. By the by, I love that image of the plate on your header right now — magazine worthy

  5. You had me with the title, my favorite cookie for sure. I love them anyway they are made, but I will surely try this recipe and thank you. Your images as always are wonderful and could be out of a magazine spread. Have a great week.

  6. Thanks Sherry…I’m going to give these a try…making them with spelt flour and see how they come out…my son is gluten free and this flour works well in most recipes…
