Oatmeal Spice Cookies

Every oatmeal cookie I’ve ever had has oatmeal accompanied by raisins.  Don’t get me wrong, I love oatmeal raisin cookies.  I love oatmeal with some brown sugar and raisins for breakfast.  I love blueberry oatmeal muffins.  I loved baked oatmeal with some warm milk.  I just love oatmeal.  These cookies feature oatmeal front and center enhanced by a variety of spices: nutmeg, allspice, cloves, and cinnamon.

Enjoy these crisp cookies with a glass of milk or a cup of coffee.

Preheat oven to 350˚F.

Stir together the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, salt, cloves, and oatmeal until well combined.

In your mixer or another bowl, beat the brown sugar, butter, vanilla, and egg together until smooth. (Here are the ingredients ready to mix and after mixing)

Add flour mixture into butter mixture just until combined. Add more oatmeal if you like lots of oatmeal bits in your cookies.

Drop by spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet.

These cookies will spread considerably, so space mounds 2 inches apart.  Bake for 8-10 minutes until golden brown and slightly firm.  They will continue to brown slightly while cooling on the sheet.  Wait 10 minutes before moving to a wire rack to cool.  These cookies will be fragile while warm, so take caution.  Enjoy with your milk (chocolate milk sounds really good too).
