How to Make Overnight Oatmeal Cookies
- Add last three ingredients and mix well. Mixture will be sticky but not smooth, like most cookie dough. Drop by teaspoonful onto ungreased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart. (I like to use an ice cream scoop--the kind that scoops the dough out of the scoop-- as it makes the cookies more full & even, they look nicer! Like Mrs. Field's does!) Bake at 350 degrees, in preheated oven, for 18-20 minutes. These cookies will be golden, with brown edges and bottoms. Remove immediately and cool on a wire rack. I have also dipped them in melted chocolate, after cooling—either sideways, one half; or dipping the cookie bottoms only. WARNING: Guard well, or they'll disappear in a flash!
