Oatmeal Sugar Cookies

These are Mr. Wii’s most favorite cookie. He ate so many of them at one sitting (one time a long time ago) that he gave them a different name. Colon Blows. He has pretty much said it all. In fact, family members refer to them by this name. I have no control over my family either.

This cookie is a different sort of oatmeal cookie. As you can see, there is no brown sugar nor is there any shortening. This is a crunchy, sugary cookie. I like them with no raisins and most everyone else likes them with golden raisins. I adore them with white chocolate chips.  Either way, give them a try.

Oatmeal Sugar Cookies

  • 2 sticks butter or margarine (1 cup), softened to room temperature
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups rolled oats (any style of rolled oats just not the instant in the envelope kind)
  • small bowl with extra granulated sugar

Optional: 1 cup plumped golden raisins or chopped nuts

Another Option: 12 oz. white chocolate chips (you will need to increase the baking time by 3-5 minutes)

In a large mixing bowl, cream the first four ingredients. Sift the remaining ingredients and add to the wet mixture.

Mix together then add optional nuts and/or raisins or the white chocolate chips. Roll the cookie dough into 1 inch balls then roll the balls in the extra sugar.

Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375° for 10-13 minutes until very lightly golden. Cool on a wire rack.


You just can’t have too much sugar……..can you?


You really don’t want to over bake these. Lightly golden brown on the edge is what you are after.

I like to sprinkle a little sugar on them right when they come out of the oven.


Aren’t they yummy? I like sugar on cookies.

Enjoy.
