Nothing fancy, just really, really good Christmas Oatmeal Cookies. Easy to make with only five ingredients.


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cup quick oats


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cream butter and sugar together in the bowl of an electric mixer. Add vanilla, then flour and oatmeal.
  3. Drop 1 inch balls onto cookie sheet and flatten. You can do this by hand, or with the bottom of a glass (spray with nonstick spray).
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
  5. Remove them from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer to a cooling rack.
  6. Dust with powdered sugar.


*If you don’t have quick oats, you can pulse old fashioned oats in the blender or food processor a few times.
