These cookies are delicious but they did spread alot. I substituted 1/2 of the butter with canola oil it was still fantastic. I will make these again, but, I will eliminate greasing the pan and maybe add an egg white to keep it from spreading. Thanks for recipe!-13 Aug 2008


The cookie dough itself was absolutely delicious! But the cookies spread alot, so they have to be spaced out on a baking tray, about 5 cm, apart. The cookies were delicious and I'll definately make them again.-24 Apr 2004

I made these with my kids. It is such an easy and fun recipe. I did have to adjust my cooking time a little, but that is to be expected. With different ovens the cooking time will vary. We will make these and hand them out for Christmas at my husbands office, and the kids are going to make some for their Teachers! I think I will make some extra, like one reviewer said. One bite and they will know that they are in for a real tasty treat. I think these are the best oatmeal cookies I have ever made!-11 Dec 2007

Recipe Summary

  • ¾ cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves (optional)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups rolled oats

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and, if desired, cinnamon and cloves. Beat until combined, scraping side of bowl occasionally. Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour. Stir in rolled oats.

Drop dough by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are golden. Let stand on cookie sheets for 1 minute. Transfer to wire racks and let cool. Makes about 48 cookies.

Recipe Summary

  • 1 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 pound (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ
  • 12 ounces good-quality chocolate, chopped into chunks, or 1 1/2 cups golden raisins, or 10 ounces toffee pieces

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine the brown sugar, granulated sugar, and butter in an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Starting with the mixer on low speed and increasing until it is on medium, beat until the mixture is creamy and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add the eggs and the vanilla extract, then scrape the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula, and mix to combine.

Combine the rolled oats, flour, baking soda, baking powder, and wheat germ in a large bowl, and stir to combine. Add the dry mixture to the butter mixture, then mix on low speed just to combine, 10 to 15 seconds. Remove the bowl from mixer stand, and stir in your choice of chocolate chunks, golden raisins, or toffee pieces.

Line the baking pans with parchment paper. Use a large (2 1/2 ounce) or small (1 1/4 ounce) ice-cream scoop to form balls of dough. Place the balls of dough about 4 inches apart on baking pans. Bake until golden and just set, about 18 minutes for large cookies and 14 minutes for small cookies. Remove from oven let cool on pan 4 to 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

History of Canned Coconut

There were a few funny things that happened as I tried to decipher my mother-in-law’s 30-year-old recipe. Fortunately, most of it was typed out. Unfortunately, some of it was handwritten. I thought she wrote a 40 oz. can of Bakers shredded coconut, which, yes, I should have known was wrong. But who am I to question Grandma Pat? So, I went to the baking aisle looking for 40 oz. of Bakers Sothern Style Canned Coconut.

The first thing I learned was that Bakers canned coconut no longer existed. But what WAS canned coconut? And why had my mother-in-law insisted on it as part of this age-old cherished recipe?

A Revolutionary Product

What I learned about this revolutionary new style of canned coconut was that it apparently changed coconut baking recipes at the time, and clearly for good! It was some time during the 1920’s when Bakers (and possibly other brands, I’m not sure) started selling shredded coconut in tin cans. This made a big difference from the previously known versions of shredded coconut that were described as ‘ dry, gritty, & powdery.’ This new coconut was so much moister. It promised to be much more like the fresh tender version of the real deal.

It certainly made baking with coconut an entirely new experience.

Fast forward to the next century and Baker’s shredded coconut doesn’t come in cans anymore, but fortunately it comes in bags and it has somehow, miraculously, maintained the same tenderness and moistness that everyone has come to love so much.

The 40 oz can turned out to be a 𔄜 oz can.” Luckily, my husband loves to sprinkle shredded coconut on his oatmeal every morning. Needless to say, we are well-stocked in shredded coconut for the foreseeable future.

Oatmeal M&M Cookie Mix in a Jar Neighbor Gift

The cutest Oatmeal M&M Cookie Mix in a Jar Neighbor Gift from the fabulous Emily at Is This Really My Life. We absolutely love the recipes she shares. This is a such a fun idea…a neighbor gift for your kids to help make. Deliver to neighbors and get to know some new people on nearby streets!

Hi! My name is Emily and I blog all kinds of delicious things (i.e., lots and lots of baked goods) over at Is This Really My Life. I’m so glad Crafting Chicks is sharing their Mother Hen’s Summer Survival Guide again this year. I always discover amazing new crafts and recipes thanks to all the awesome guests, plus I get to share some fun recipes like last year’s butterfly cupcakes (I could eat those pretzel wings by the handful).

Today I’m sharing an especially “sweet” and easy (can I get an amen for “easy”?) neighbor gift idea: oh-so-yummy oatmeal M&M cookie mix in a jar. Mmm…



This week’s theme is “Me on the Map” and it’s all about our community and our world. At first I thought it would be fun to share an international dessert that ties to my heritage (Irish apple cake..English scones…), but then a question recently asked at church had me rethinking that idea. Someone asked us how well we knew the neighbors on our street, and I realized there are a few families I’ve never met beyond a wave and a “hello.”

Next thing I knew, I was brainstorming a fun neighbor gift idea. Thanks to this adorable teacher appreciation gift I put together for Skip to My Lou, I was all about the mason jar. What better way to welcome new neighbors to your “map” than with oatmeal M&M cookie mix in a jar?

Oatmeal M&M Cookie Mix in a Jar Neighbor Gift



I found a yummy recipe for what are often called cowboy cookies and tweaked it ever so slightly. I found the amount of M&Ms and chocolate chips made it so my sugar spilleth over even after I’d packed those ingredients tighter than my jeans after the holidays. A slight adjustment and everything fit much better!

Add a polka dot cupcake liner, some white raffia ribbon and a printable gift tag with the recipe on back and you’ll be your new neighbors favorite neighbor in no time! The cutest gift…Oatmeal M&M Cookie Mix in a Jar Neighbor Gift!



To assemble this oatmeal M&M cookie mix in a jar, place the following ingredients in the jar in the order listed (see photo below ingredient list). Make sure you pack it down as you go. I found my wooden tart tamper to be the right tool for the job. It fit perfectly inside the jar and the shape made packing the ingredients so much easier.

  • 1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup M&Ms
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup white sugar

Speaking of cookies, these old-fashioned iced oatmeal cookies are one of my absolutely favorites. I don’t make them often because I can eat the entire batch in one sitting. Not lying. These oatmeal cookies are also a great way to welcome new neighbors!

I love being social! Feel free to connect with me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, YouTube & the occasional Periscope!

Oatmeal Cookie Cream Pies

Remember back in the day when you&rsquod open your lunch box to find an individually wrapped snack cake waiting for you? You just knew all of your friends were jealous as you pushed your carrot sticks aside to gobble it up. We can&rsquot turn back time, but we can offer you this recipe for oatmeal cookie cream pies, and that&rsquos kind of the next best thing.

For the ultimate chewy texture, be careful not to overbake the cookies&mdashwhen the edges are just golden, they&rsquore ready. The silky vanilla cream can be piped with a piping bag (if you&rsquore fancy), but an offset spatula does the job just fine.

Time to relive the glory days.

Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature

2 eggs, at room temperature

1½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Vanilla Cream

1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature

One 8-ounce package cream cheese, at room temperature

3 cups confectioners’ sugar

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Make the Chewy Oatmeal Cookies: In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter with both of the sugars on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.

3. Add the eggs one at a time, scraping the side of the bowl well after each addition. Add the vanilla and mix to combine.

4. In a medium bowl, mix the flour with the oats, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and ginger to combine. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture mix on low speed until fully combined.

5. Using an ice-cream scoop (or two spoons), make 1-inch balls of dough and place them on the baking sheet, leaving at least 1 inch of space between each ball to allow room for the cookies to spread as they bake.

6. Bake the cookies until they are golden around the edge, 8 to 10 minutes. Cool completely.

7. Make the Vanilla Cream: In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter with the cream cheese on medium speed until well combined. Add the confectioners&rsquo sugar and vanilla, then mix until smooth.

8. Turn half the cookies over (flat-side up) and spoon 2 to 3 tablespoons of filling into the center of each cookie. Top with another cookie (flat-side down) and press lightly to spread the filling evenly. The cookies can be kept in an airtight container for up to five days.

How to make oatmeal cookies

  1. DOUGH. In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugars. Then add eggs and vanilla. Stir until combined. Add in the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon (if desired). Stir just until combined, then mix in the oats.
  2. SCOOP. Scoop dough onto baking sheet using medium cookie scoop.
  3. BAKE. Bake at 350°F until edges are just light golden brown, about 7 to 10 minutes. Allow to rest for about 2 minutes on baking sheet, then transfer to cooling rack.

TIP: When you take your oatmeal cookies out of the oven, the centers should look a little underdone (they will continue baking on sheet). For a softer cookie, take them out a little early. And for a crispier version, bake a little longer.
