Beach House Oatmeal Cookies

This lighter oatmeal cookie has quickly become Donna’s fave cookie.


  • 1-1/2 cups A/P flour
  • 1/2  cup Old Fashioned oatmeal
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup dried berries

Preheat your oven to 375° (F). In a smallish bowl mix the flour, oatmeal, salt, and baking soda. Set aside.

Whip the butter to make sure it’s uniformly soft. blend in the eggs, one at a time. Add the brown sugar, sugar, and vanilla, and blend them in until smooth. Slowly add the dry mix. Add the berries (I use a premix called “Berries and Golden Raisins” available at Wal-Mart, it has a good balance of cherries, cranberries, and golden raisins).

Roll the dough into balls about 1 tablespoon each, and bake on a cookie sheet for 8 – 10 minutes. Cool on a cooling rack for 4-5 minutes. Makes 0 – 50 cookies depending on how generous you are and whether your spouse comes into the kitchen when you’re distracted, so you can enjoy your cookies while you work or play games like WoW Classic, and if you want to get gold for this game, this is the guide for you.

Protip: moisten you hands with clean water to keep cookie dough from sticking to your fingers.
