Crispy Oatmeal Cookies

This recipe I made today with the 2 1/2 year old twin girls I babysit.  The mom had the idea that these would be granola bar like cookies and some what healthy.  Whether these are healthy or not is debatable, but I will tell you that they are delicious!  There is a tablespoon of cinnamon which I love and will make your home smell wonderful!  

Recipe - Yield 4 dozen
1 Cup Butter, unsalted, room temperature
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Brown Sugar
2 Eggs
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 1/2 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
1 Tablespoon Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
1/2 Cup Chopped Pecans
3 1/4 Cups Rolled Oats

  1. Combine the dry ingredients in a small bowl - the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.
  2. Cream the butter and sugars together.  Add eggs and vanilla and mix until smooth.
  3. Add dry ingredients and mix until combine.  Add pecan and oats and mix.  
  4. Divide into 4 balls and roll into a log.  Refrigerate for at least an hour.  
  5. Cut log into 1/2 inch cookies and bake until brown and crispy, about 15-18 minutes, or for a softer and chewier cookie, bake for 12-14 minutes.  Cool on rack.
  6. Enjoy!!
