Easy Oatmeal Cookies

While thinking of something to have for a late afternoon snack, Oatmeal Cookies eventually crossed my mind. I knew that I still have the ingredients and time is not a big factor because it only takes less than 30 minutes for me to enjoy one. This cookie recipe taste just right – that’s what I like about it. It has the right amount of sweetness and you can taste the sudden explosion of the cinnamon on your fist bite. I also like the soft texture because it makes this cookie chewy and more enjoyable. I was able to make 9 large pieces of perfect oatmeal cookies with this recipe. I scooped 1/4 cup of mixture for every cookie. If you prefer average sized cookies, try scooping a heaping tablespoon; this can yield approximately 14 to 16 pieces. Before I wrap this up, allow me to give some pointers: It is normal for the cookies to become soft after baking – do not over bake. Simply remove the cookies from the oven and wait for a few minutes until it cools down. Place the cookie in a cooling grid or wire rack only if the texture is hard enough. Removing soft cookies from the tray might tear them apart. Lastly, having a hot cup of coffee, milk or chocolate by your side is not a bad idea.
