Brown Sugar Oatmeal Cookies


  • 2 c packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 c (2 sticks) salted butter, softened
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ½ c all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 3 c old-fashioned oats


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer (or using a hand mixer), beat together the brown sugar and butter until fluffy. Beat in the vanilla. Add the eggs one at a time, scraping the bowl after each one.

  3. Mix together the flour, salt and baking soda in a medium bowl. Add it into the creamed mixture in 2-3 batches, mixing until just combined. Mix in the oats until just combined.

  4. Use your preferred size cookie scoop (or a regular spoon) to drop portions of dough onto baking sheets, spacing them a couple inches apart. Bake until dark and chewy, 12-13 minutes. If you'd like a crispier cookie, just cook a little longer!

  5. Let the cookies cool slightly on the baking sheets, then transfer onto a plate for serving.

  6. Optional: Add ½ C finely chopped nuts to the flour mixture if you'd like a nutty flavor and crunch.
