  • Jam (or jams!) of your choice 


  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 350˚F.

  2. 2

    In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, and mix well. Stir in the vanilla.

  3. 3

    In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.

  4. 4

    Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, mixing until fully incorporated.

  5. 5

    Mix in the oats and any add-ins you fancy. See Note.

  6. 6

    Place scoops of oatmeal cookie dough 2 inches apart on a greased or parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. Use your thumb to make a hollow in the dough.

  7. 7

    Use a piping bag or a spoon to put a dollop of jam in the center of each cookie.

  8. 8

    Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, or until the cookies look fully baked and the edges are golden.

    Note: 1 to 1½ cups raisins, chocolate chips, chopped pecans, walnuts, dried cranberries, minced dried cherries, currants—whatever you like!
