Recipe: Chewy Oatmeal Maple Cookies
What is it about cool, brisk autumn weather that makes us crave flavors like maple, cinnamon, and nutmeg? While somebody else works on the science behind that question, we've already worked on the perfect cookie recipe to answer that craving. This chewy oatmeal cookie is loaded with flavor and spice, ideal with a cup of coffee, your favorite chai tea, or even an old-fashioned glass of milk. Chewy Oatmeal Maple Cookies 1 cup butter 1 cup brown sugar, packed 1/2 cup real maple syrup 2 eggs 2 tablespoons milk or cream 1 teaspoon vanilla 2 1/4 cup flour (for extra chewy cookies, use bread flour) 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg 2 cups rolled oats Directions Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a small saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. In a mixing bowl, combine brown sugar, maple syrup, and melted butter, stirring until mixture is fully combined and caramel in color. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs with the milk and vanilla before adding into the sugar/butter mixture. In a separate bowl, sift the dry ingredients together (flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, cardamom, and nutmeg). Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet mixture, followed by the oats. Once combined, allow dough to rest for 5-10 minutes before spooning 1/4 cup mounds onto a prepared baking sheet, six cookies per sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.
