Here's my best oatmeal cookie recipe by far. I've tried lots of different ones. Even though some of the oatmeal recipes seem very similar, the final results are vastly different. On top of that, simple cookie recipes aren't always that simple.
This, however, is an old-fashioned oatmeal cookie recipe that IS easy to make and it tastes so similar to the ones my Mutti used to make. With the added apricots, they aren't just typical - they're extra-ordinary!
For me, I love the chewiness that the apricots give. AND the extra flavor! Instead of apricots you can add chocolate chips and/or raisins as well. If you'd like, you can omit the almonds, or add more, or add other nuts as well. These easy-to-make cookies always get rave reviews when added to our Christmas cookie platters.
When baking cookies, I have several baking sheets, depending on the type of cookie I'm making.
One of my favorites to use are these AirBake Cookie Sheets.
There's an air insulation pocket that helps prevent burning and it also decreases the baking time. That means ... quicker and better cookies!
There's a 4.5 star rating on Amazon for these, and it's no wonder. I've had mine for years ... and used them for years! Since they're made from 100% aluminum, there's no rusting.
I have both the smaller and larger size. Although, I think I'll be adding to my collection with another large size. So perfect for holiday baking.
In fact, among my holiday baking recipes, these Haferflockenkekse are a must.
