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.

I've teamed up with my own business coach, Renae Christine (yes, do google her!), to bring you this free masterclass. After you watch it, ask me any questions and I'll gladly answer them.
Don't hesitate. I'm not sure how long Renae will keep this free masterclass available.
PS: Yes, Renae really is as amazing as all the reviews say.
PPS: Yes, the course is for handmade items, but I've used it successfully for my cookbooks. I know others are using her methods for services, direct sales ,and even a local ice cream bar & grill that's constantly selling out. You've nothing to lose by taking a look.
