Brown Sugar Oatmeal Cookies
- 2 cups packed dark brown sugar
- 1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter, softened

- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 3 cups old-fashioned oats
DirectionsWatch how to make this recipe.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix together the flour, salt and baking soda in a medium bowl. Add it into the creamed mixture in 2 to 3 batches, mixing until just combined. Mix in the oats until just combined.
Use your preferred size cookie scoop (or a regular spoon) to drop portions of dough onto baking sheets, spacing them a couple inches apart. Bake until dark and chewy, 12 to 13 minutes. If you'd like a crispier cookie, just cook a little longer!
Let the cookies cool slightly on the baking sheets, then transfer onto a plate for serving.
Add 1/2 cup finely chopped nuts to the flour mixture if you'd like a nutty flavor and crunch.
