Amazing Oatmeal Cookies

These really are 'amazing' oatmeal cookies!  The spices added give them a punch of flavor that makes you want 'just one more bite'.  The finished cookie is soft and goes well with a tall, cold glass of milk!

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup flour
1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
{the above ingredients can be bagged and stored in the pantry as a cookie mix for easy use in the future and/or for gifting}
1 stick butter, softened
1 egg

  1. Preheat oven to 350 and prepare a cookie sheet with nonstick baking spray. 
  2. Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl and set aside.
  3. Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and egg until creamy.  
  4. With the mixer on a lower speed, slowly add the combined dry ingredients to the creamed mixture. Beat or stir until a thick dough forms. 
  5. Using a 1 tablespoon measure, form dough balls and place them on the prepared baking sheet 1-2 inches apart. 
  6. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes, until the bottoms just begin to turn brown.  The tops will be a light golden color and soft to the touch. 
  7. Remove from the oven and let sit on the baking pan for about 5 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack.  
  8. Store in a sealed container or serve immediately.  

  1. Tami's Tip / Serving suggestion:
    This cookie is especially great when served with spiced whipped topping. To an 8 oz tub of cool whip add 1/4 cup of  Sweet Spice Blend (recipe here) and stir to combine.  Chill for about an hour and serve as a dip with the cookies.  The spiced cool whip will keep in the fridge for up to 5 days.    

  TIP: pull out all of your ingredients first and then begin assembling.  
I like to plan for several blends to be bagged at the same time to save on duplicated efforts.
For example, on this particular day, I restocked the pantry with 2 cookie mixes that use similar seasonings
and I restocked my supply of Sweet Bread Blend as well.  
 I love to keep a supply of our favorite cookie mixes on the shelf.
It makes fresh baked cookies so easy and I get to be in control of the ingredients
(vs. a mix I buy from the grocery store shelf)
 Keeping cookie mixes on the shelf also makes it easy to 
create a gift from the heart of my home! 
With a supply of empty mason jars on hand, 
I can dump any of my homemade cookie mixes into a jar
add a bow and the hand printed recipe for the finished cookie
and I feel great about giving it to anyone for any reason!
 When making the dough, a thick and sticky result is what you are going for.  
As mentioned in the serving suggestion, 
this cookie is a real treat when dipped in  spiced whipped topping (recipe here)

This cookie is a great 'after school snack', especially when served with a tall, cold glass of milk.
Make it easy to offer fresh baked cookies when they walk in the door by 
filling the freezer with frozen balls of this cookie dough.  
Here's how...
