Mother in Law Cookies

Jessica Hannan


This is a recipe I came up with because I dreamed up my mother in law asking for oatmeal cookies with no cinnamon and almond extract. I made the cookies and they taste great, even if it was a request I had imagined up lol

10 Min


3/4 c
butter, unsalted
1/2 c
white sugar
1/2 c
brown sugar
1 c
unbleached all purpose flour
3 c
old fashioned rolled oats
1/2 tsp
almond extract
3/4 tsp
baking soda


1Preheat oven to 350.
2Cream butter, sugar, eggs, almond extract together until creamy.
3Whisk together flour and soda, stir into butter mixture
4Stir in oats.
5Drop by tablespoon onto cookie sheet.I use a small ice cream scopp because I am OCD and like them to all be exactly the same size and shape. :)
6Bake for about 10-12 minutes. I like mine chewey, so I underbake slightly.
7Let cool for a few minutes and then place on rack to cool. Let cookie sheet cool for 10-15 minutes between batches, or the cookies get flat and thin.
