Oatmeal Snickerdoodles



Oatmeal raisin cookies are a favorite over here...or a version of them that uses granola. But not everyone is fond of raisins and so I came up with an oatmeal snickerdoodle cookie (very much like Ellen's snickerdoodle recipe but with the addition of oatmeal). The oatmeal makes it a healthy choice, right? :)
  • 1 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups large flake oatmeal (old fashioned oats)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
Topping:
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Cream butter sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Scrape down sides of bowl. Then add eggs and beat well.
  4. Add vanilla and beat again to incorporate.
  5. Combine flour, oats, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl.
  6. Add dry ingredients into butter mixture and mix well.
  7. Using a small cookie scoop or rounded teaspoon, form cookies and place on parchment lined cookie sheets.  Allow space for spreading. Press down slightly with the palm of your hand.
  8. Combine cinnamon and sugar for topping and sprinkle generously over the top of each cookie. 
  9. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until lightly browned.  Cool for several minutes before removing from pan to cool completely on wire rack.
Yield: 3-4 dozen cookies, depending on size.

  3. I've always thought snickerdoodles were too sugary, so adding oatmeal is a good idea.

  5. This formula is one that I got years back from an old school flat mate. In those days, it was the first occasion when I myself had Snickerdoodles – and I didn't understand at the time that this variant – with Online Assignment Help - AssignmentCamp cereal added to the player was not a "work of art" Snickerdoodles treat.
