Brown Sugar Oatmeal Cookies

Preheat Oven: – Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat to prevent cookies from sticking.

Combine Dry Ingredients: – In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, rolled oats, baking soda, and salt until well combined for a flavorful and textured cookie base.

Cream Butter and Sugar: – In a separate bowl, cream together softened butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy, creating a rich and sweet base for the cookies.

Add Wet Ingredients: – Beat in eggs and vanilla extract until smooth and incorporated, adding richness and flavor to the cookie dough.

Mix in Dry Ingredients: – Gradually mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until a thick cookie dough forms, ensuring even distribution of ingredients for consistent texture.

Fold in Mix-Ins: – Fold in any desired mix-ins such as chocolate chips, raisins, nuts, or dried fruit for added flavor, texture, and customization.

Scoop and Bake: – Use a cookie scoop or spoon to portion out dough onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving space between each cookie to allow for spreading during baking.

Bake Until Golden: – Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and the centers are set for a perfect balance of softness and crunch.
