Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

I've been looking for a good oatmeal cookie recipe for years so when I saw my friend, Heather's recipe I had to try it!

I added a teaspoon of cinnamon to my dough, other than that I didn't change a thing!


After making the dough into balls...


...roll each one in powdered sugar.


All ready for a big glass of milk!


Be sure to visit Heather at A Quiet Place of Rest for the recipe! Heather, when I asked the girls and Benjamin if they liked them they said, "Yes! You need to make them more often!" :0) Thank you for the wonderful recipe!

Those look delicious. They remind me of snickerdoodles, the color and the rolling in sugar.

And I am with Grace. I think my students would love it if I called off school in honor of National Apron Day. Let's go shopping Grace!

Heather said...

I'm so glad your family likes the recipe Kelli! I love cinnamon and think that would be a nice addition, but as I wrote in my blog, I was specifically looking for a really plain cookie that my husband remembered and loved. They were a big hit in our family too! Did you find them terribly sweet? I did, but I try to avoid sugar!

Blessings!
Heather

Oh, yum! I love the last step with rolling them in powdered sugar, that makes them, can't wait to try!

Marci said...

Kelli, were they the really soft ones? My friend has a recipe that is good, but they are crunchy. I like the soft ones.

Kelli said...

Jennifer, I was a messy baker today, I just left that out of the picture! LOL

Marci, they are very soft!

Gena said...

Oh, those look so good. I've never heard of rolling them in powdered sugar, either, but I bet they are great. My girls love sugar on anything, so in their eyes, it would only improve the cookies.
