Lunch Box Oatmeal Cookies

Time for another What's Cookin' Wednesday with Heather of Life as We Know it. This week Aaron and I made these Lunch Box Oatmeal Cookies. I saw them in this weeks coupon insert and immediately had to look them up, they looked so good! Aaron is definitely my helper when it comes to baking and I was so happy he could help me make these, and then sample a few.

Here's what you need:
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 3/4 cups uncooked old-fashioned quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup candy-coated chocolate pieces
Here's what to do:
  • Heat oven to 375°F.
  • Combine sugar, butter, egg and vanilla in large bowl.
  • Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy.
  • Reduce speed to low; add oats, flour, baking soda and salt.
  • Continue beating until well mixed.
  • Stir in chocolate pieces.
  • Drop dough by heaping teaspoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto lightly greased cookie sheets.
  • Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
  • Let stand 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire cooling rack.
These cookies are so flippin' delicious! I hope you enjoy them as much as Aaron and I did!
