Cinnamon Maple Oatmeal Cookies.

Or maybe they should be “cinnamon sugar maple oatmeal cookies”… but that name is so long.

So, these are the yummies I made for dessert tonight. I didn’t want to buy anything because I’m sick of buying ingredients for cookies. This used what I had on hand.

I based what I did on the Oatmeal Crispies on the Pioneer Woman website.

What I needed:

  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon maple flavoring
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 cups rolled oat

What I did:

  1. Cream shortening and sugars until well combined. Then add the eggs, vanilla, maple flavoring and cinnamon and mix for a few moments.
  2. Slowly add the flour, salt, baking soda and oats until mix until well combined.
  3. Scoop tablespoon sized hunks of dough onto a baking sheet (either lined with parchment paper OR oiled) and flatten them out a little with your fingers. Bake for 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees.

I think I got approximately 42 cookies, if my fuzzy math is anywhere close to accurate. There were a LOT of cookies. 12+12+12+6 = 42, right?

Anyway, these were pretty awesome. I had at least 4 tonight. (Don’t tell! I won’t eat more than one tomorrow… I swear!)

Really really yummy. :)
