It is another Friday which for me means celebrating another National Food Holiday! Last week was a new food to me, Oatmeal Nut Waffle Day. Today is one of my favorite foods, Oatmeal Cookies!
While there are many different kinds of Oatmeal cookies, my favorite are a kind that my mom makes. They stray from the typical oatmeal raisin kind, but that is ok. They still have plenty of oatmeal in them along with coconut, heath bits, and butterscotch morsels! Here is the recipe.
I want more! Oatmeal Cookies
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 lb (2 sticks) softened butter
1 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups Oats (uncooked)
1 1/2 cups shredded coconut
1 cup butterscotch morsels
1/2 cup Heath (or toffee) bits
1. Preheat your oven on to 350 degrees, In a bowl sift together the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon).
2. In a large separate bowl, with an electric or stand mixer, cream the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until a nice creamy consistency. Add the vanilla and one egg. Mix. Add second egg. Mix. Continue mixing while gradually adding the bowl of dry ingredients.
3. Fold in the coconut, butterscotch morsels, and heath, stirring until everything is incorporated.
4. On a nonstick baking sheet, drop the cookies in sphere shapes. Bake for 12-15 minutes (depending on the size of your cookies)

I blogged about these last year as a way to procrastinate studying for college finals, but with it being National Oatmeal Cookie Day, this is my favorite cookie to celebrate with! Whether you make these or your personal favorite Oatmeal Cookie, I hope everyone has a great National Oatmeal Cookie Day, and a great weekend!
