This recipe was featured in my Holiday Cookie Baking Class. You can read about it and get additional cookie recipes featured at the event HERE.
Here is the recipe I made in advance where everyone added their choice of various cookie “mix-ins.” For the cookies I made today, I mixed in holiday colored white chocolate chips and chopped macadamia nuts.
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups AP flour
2.5 cups processed oatmeal – this is oatmeal that has been processed in a food processor until it becomes a powder
Cream butter and sugars in stand mixer.
Add combined dry ingredients in a separate bowl.
Slowly add the dry ingredients to the egg/sugar mixture.
Dough will the very thick and dense.
Add in your choice of mix ins.
Line cookie sheet with parchment paper (optional).
Using a cookie scoop, drop balls of dough onto lined cookie sheet.
You could also hand roll the dough into small golf ball sized balls.
Bake in a preheated oven for 8-10 minutes.
Cool on wire rack.
