"Recipes are meant to be shared"

It is my intention to add a couple of recipes here every week. Although between working and playing with my daily blog 'Thibeault's Table', I'm not always successful.

Oatmeal - Best Oatmeal Cookies

Oatmeal - Best Oatmeal Cookies
Source: Toronto Star

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup
packed brown sugar
1 egg
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 2/3 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon
baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
dash nutmeg
1 1/2 cups rolled oats

Preheat oven to 350 Cream butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Add egg and beat until smooth. Add vanilla. Combine flour, soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir into butter mixture. Add rolled oats. Roll into small balls (golf ball size) and flatten with glass dipped in sugar. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until bottoms are golden. Cookie should not get brown. Cool on wire rack.

Options: Add chopped Callebaut White chocolate and sprinkle with sea salt. Or add cranberries.
For a lacy - thinner buttery cookie, reduce the flour to 1 cup.  Cookies will spread more so be sure to space further apart.

I wish the measurement could be given in ounces as english and American cups differs in weight.I avoid any recipes that says CUP because I have had a lot of bad experiences with the CUP.

Asda sells cups... Get a set and measure away! It saved me losing out on all my recipes when I was living in the UK.

These turned out great! I did make a few changes though, I used 1 cup of brown sugar and 1/2 cup of sugar, and a 1/8 tsp of cinnamon (im not a big fan of cinnamon. Thanks for the recipe :)
