These cookies are out of this world good!!
Dawn's Orange Marmalade Oatmeal Cookies
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tbsp spoon of marmalade.
(I use orange but I guess any other would work too)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3 cups quick cooking oats
raisins or nuts (optional)
PREHEAT OVEN TO 375.
1. In a medium bowl, cream together white sugar, butter, and
Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla and the marmalade.
2. Combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda,and salt. Stir into
the creamed mixture. Mix in oats. If you are using nuts or
raisins, mix into dough, combining well. Cover, and chill
dough for at least one hour.
3. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie
sheets. Roll the dough into balls, and place 2 inches apart on
Remember they will be a bit more sticky because of the marmalade.
4. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool
on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to
cool completely - they come out sort of chewy and crunchy all at once.
