Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies

Tis the season of unnecessary cookie baking. My favorite time of year. Cookies are a good way to get your feet wet in the baking world, generally there's enough dough for more than one batch, so if you mess up the baking time and get cookies that are too crunchy or soft, there's always more for another try. This recipe came from an old church cookbook (with a few tweaks due to ingredient shortages).

Oatmeal Cookies

1 1/2 Cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
powdered sugar

Mix together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt. In a separate bowl, cream together butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Mix together the two mixtures. Stir in the oats. Form balls approximately 1 tablespoon in size and roll balls in powdered sugar. Place on cookie sheet and press down with a fork.

Bake at 350 F for 12-15 minutes or until light brown.

For me this recipe made 36 cookies (3 sheets of 12 cookies each)
