Oatmeal Cookies
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1 stick butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup milk

Preheat the oven to 350°.

Mix together the rolled oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and allspice.

Cream butter with the two sugars until smooth. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until light and well blended. Add the oat mixture and the milk, beating until well combined. Use a 1 tbsp scoop and drop about 2″ apart onto parchment-lined (or lightly-greased) cookie sheets. Press the tops gently to flatten very slightly.

Bake until the edges are brown and the centers are still soft and puffy, about 12 to 14 minutes.
