How to make these soft Chewy Oatmeal Cookies.
These cookies are one of the easiest cookies to make, yet so tasty. I love to use salted butter to make them. If you prefer to bake with unsalted butter that’s fine, you will need to add 1/4 tsp of salt to this recipe. See formula below:
1/4 teaspoon salt + 1/2 cup ( 1 Stick unsalted butter ) = 1/2 cup (1 stick salted butter)
Usually when I want a chewier cookie, I add an extra egg yolk like I did with my chocolate chip cookie recipe. Thanks to Karo®️ Corn Syrup, I can make the chewiest #Cookie ever without having to crack an extra egg just for the yolk. Want to make some more chewy treats? I l bet you do.
