Some days you just need cookies. I’m not talking about wanting cookies, I’m talking about needing cookies. If today is one of those days, then trust me, you need these butter oatmeal cookies.
Cookies are just nice. They are nice from the moment you cream the butter and sugar together, and every step that comes after. All the way from bowl, to oven, to mouth, they leave happy trails of crumbs from your fingertips to your tongue, and throughout every inch of your body as they travel to their warm resting place in your tummy.
Butter Oatmeal Cookies
These butter oatmeal cookies have a toasty exterior with a chewy center. They have a delicious texture and mouthfeel with cooked oats complimented with the wonderful molasses flavor of brown sugar.
My problem with every oatmeal cookie I’ve had previously is they are often too heavy on the flour, leaving no crispy outer rim nor chewy, buttery inside.
Well, that will not do, so today I started with butter and oatmeal and I figured the rest I would leave up to the cookie fairies.
I love it when the cookie fairies come to visit! Invite them to your kitchen with this scrumptious recipe that will not disappoint!

Can I Use a Different Oil than Coconut for the Best Butter Oatmeal Cookies?
Yes! You can use Crisco, or margarine if that’s your jam!
Speaking of Jam
I just had an idea…
These cookies would be amazing sandwiched together with peanut butter and jam.
It would be an entirely amazing different type of cookie sandwich.
My Favorite Cookie Pans on Amazon
Nordicware is my favorite brand for cookware! It cooks so evenly and the pans are nice and thick so you don’t have to worry about burning on the bottom.
I am an Amazon affiliate and Amazon sometimes pays me an incredibly small stipend from the sale of these items, and it does not cost you anything to click on them!
And I love silicone baking mats. They make baking cookies so easy!
