One-Cup Cookies

One-Cup Cookies

As the name implies, you use 1 cup of most of the ingredients. Plus, you can add and delete the extra goodies as you want.

  1. 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  2. 1 cup white sugar
  3. 1 cup butter, softened
  4. 2 eggs
  5. 1 cup peanut butter (if using crunchy don’t add nuts later)
  6. 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  7. 1 1/2 cups flour
  8. 1 teaspoon baking soda
  9. 1 teaspoon baking powder

INGREDIENTS TO ADD: Pick and choose from this list.

  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1 cup dried cranberries (raisins, blueberries, or other dried fruit)
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (or M&M’s)
  • 1 cup chopped nuts or seeds
  • 1/4 cup wheat germ

Preheat oven to 350. Cream the butter and sugars, then beat in the eggs. Add peanut butter, then the oats. Combine the flour, baking soda and baking powder together and then add into the batter, mixing well. Add your extra ingredients according to what you like. Mix well.

Drop by spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets, about 2” apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until edges are golden but middles are still slightly gooey looking. This will be different for every oven! The bottom of the cookies will be a light brown but the tops will look like they are not done. It’s okay – take them out now. Let them sit on the cookie sheet for 3-5 minutes and they will continue cook and the tops will firm up. Transfer them to a cooling rack. If you wait for the tops to look done, the cookies will be very hard. Store in a sealed container. Yield about 6 dozen depending on the size of your spoonfuls.
