---- — Looking for classic, comforting flavors in a chewy, soft cookie?
This is it.
Cinnamon-Honey Oat Drop Cookies
1 c. (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 c. packed brown sugar
½ c. honey
1 t. vanilla extract
2¼ c. all-purpose flour
1 t. baking soda
½ t. salt
1½ t. cinnamon, divided
2½ c. old-fashioned oats
¼ c. granulated sugar
Heat the oven to 350°. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, use an electric mixer to beat together the butter, brown sugar, honey and vanilla.
With the mixer running, add the eggs, one at a time, scraping the bowl in between additions.
Stir in the flour, baking soda, salt and 1 teaspoon of the cinnamon. Stir in the oats.
Scoop by the tablespoonful onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving 2 inches between each cookie.
Using a slightly moistened hand, flatten the cookies until ½-inch thick.
In a small bowl, stir together the granulated sugar and remaining ½ teaspoon of cinnamon.
Sprinkle lightly over the top of each cookie.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until no longer glossy and just starting to turn golden brown at the edges.
Let cool on the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a rack to cool completely.
