Friday Favorites: Oatmeal Cookies

Everybody has a favorite cookie and these are mine! And I had a good excuse to make them because my in-laws are coming tomorrow and they love them too! Let's not talk about how many I've eaten since they came out of the oven!!

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
3 cups uncooked oatmeal

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Beat together butter and sugars till creamy. Add eggs and vanilla, beat well. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Add to creamed ingredients. Mix well. Stir in oats.

Drop by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 8 1/2 minutes (that's my oven....and I like mine soft and chewy!)

Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to wire rack.
