I spent the weekend with my family up at our family cabin in the mountains. It was a crazy, busy, fun and food-filled weekend. Per usual, I was responsible for many of the desserts. I brought up the marshmallows I mentioned last week for Friday night and then on Saturday my mom and I made a lemon roll and these new cookies. To be honest, I probably don't need another cookie recipe. I've made tons. But none of those recipes included chocolate and oatmeal. I was pretty excited to find this recipe, because not only do they have these two ingredients, but also have cinnamon and browned butter. The cinnamon and browned butter make such a huge difference and amp up the flavor ten fold. It really adds incredible complexity and everyone kept asking "what am I tasting in these cookies!?!". As if you needed any more convincing, the cookies were gone by Sunday afternoon. Less than 24 hours later. If that's not the best compliment, I don't know what is!
This recipe is incredibly easy, so definitely give it a try!
Browned Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
recipe from here
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup loosely packed brown sugar
1 large egg
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup flour
3/4 cup oats (not quick-cook)
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup chocolate chunks (I used chocolate chips and it was difficult to incorporate all of the chips into the mix, so next time I'd probably use chunks)
