Easy Oatmeal Cookies

Oatmeal Cookies
Cookies and Milk: My day is complete!

This is a guest post by Cheryl Siens

Don’t these look just amazing? Enjoy!


  • 1 cup butter
  • ¾ cup sugar
  •  1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup flour (no need to sift)
  • 2 cups oatmeal (I used Quaker Oats – Quick)
  • 1 egg yolk


  1. Melt butter in microwave safe bowl on HIGH for approximately 1 ½ minutes, then let it cool to room temperature.  Mix in sugar.
  2. Add baking soda, flour, and oatmeal.  Stir thoroughly.
  3. Beat the egg yolk with a fork until it’s thoroughly mixed.  Add it to the bowl and stir until it’s incorporated.
  4. Grease (or spray with Pam) a standard-sized cookie sheet.  Make small balls of dough and place them on the cookie sheet.  Press down with fork in a criss-cross pattern the way you’d do for peanut butter cookies (the pattern won’t stay, but this flattens them)
  5. Bake at 350˚ for 10 to 12 minutes, or until they just start to brown around the edges.  Let the cookies cool for a minute or two on the sheets and then transfer them to a wire rack to finish cooling.
Yield: approximately 5 dozen, depending on cookie size.
