Chunky Oatmeal Cookies

 We had some family in town few days back, and I decided to bake some cookies to have around for dessert.  I was out of chocolate chips but had a bunch of oats on hand, so I decided to try the Homemade Oatmeal Cookies recipe with regular oats rather than the quick cooking variety.

I repeated the original recipe exactly, by mixing together butter and sugars until creamy, then adding eggs and vanilla. In a small bowl, I stirred the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda together, then gradually poured the flour mixture into the dough and mixed. Then I added the regular oats.  The dough was very thick and chunky.

I spooned the dough onto parchment lined pans and baked the cookies for 10 minutes.

I pulled them from the oven when they were slightly browned.

I knew from the last time I made Homemade Oatmeal Cookies that they are amazing of course, but the regular oats made for one very chunky and delicious cookie.  I baked the cookies on different racks, so some of them turned out crispy and others turned out soft--and it was hard to decide which was better.  Though I'm normally a fan of the soft variety, I really found the crunchier ones to be fantastic and my husband is sold on baking with regular oats.
