How to Make Oatmeal Cookies
Step 1: Preheat your over to 350 degrees F.
Step 2: Place butter in mixing bowl and beat then add sugars and beat with electric mixer until creamy.
NOTE: After you mix the butter with the sugars for a few minutes set them aside and finish the mixing in a few minutes. This will allow the butter to soften further and then you can cream it together with the sugar. This time also allows the sugar to dissolve in the butter making it easier to cream together.
Step 3: Add eggs and vanilla to the creamed butter and sugar mixture and beat well.
Step 4: In the second mixing bowl combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt and mix well by hand using the large mixing spoon.
Step 5: Slowly add your dry flour mixture to the butter, sugar, and eggs and beat well.
Step 6: Stir in oats, chips, and Crasins and blend well.
Step 7: Using clean hands, roll the dough into ping-pong size balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Step 8: Bake 11-13 minutes or until golden brown.
NOTE: The cookies will only flatten slightly while baking resulting in a softer cookie. You can flatten the cookies slightly before baking if you desire a crisper cookie. Also by reducing the flour by 1/2 cup will result in crisper cookies.
Step 9: Carefully remove the cookies from the oven and allow to cool for about 30 seconds before moving them to a cooling rack.
Step 10: Cool cookies completely prior to storing in an air tight container our build thank you or holiday gifts for teachers, bus drivers, mail carriers, or friends.
