Ready In 35 minutes


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon


  • Cream together butter, white sugar, and brown sugar.
  • Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla.
  • Combine flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon; stir into the creamed mixture.
  • Mix in oats. Cover, and chill dough for at least one hour.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  • Grease cookie sheets.
  • Roll the dough into walnut sized balls (or in my case use a small ice cream scoop – which is why I got 36 cookies and not 24, a bit smaller but still tasty).
  • Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets.
  • Flatten each cookie with a large fork dipped in sugar.
  • Bake for 12-13 minutes in preheated oven.
  • Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
