Oatmeal Jammys Recipe
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/8 cup white sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups old-fashioned oats
Jam (or jams!) of your choice
Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
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.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, mixing until fully incorporated.
Mix in the oats and any add-ins you fancy. See Note.
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.
Use a piping bag or a spoon to put a dollop of jam in the center of each cookie.
Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, or until the cookies look fully baked and the edges are golden.
Note: 1 to 1 1/2 cups raisins, chocolate chips, chopped pecans, walnuts, dried cranberries, minced dried cherries, currants—whatever you like!
