The Freshman Cook: Oatmeal Caramel Cookies!

One of my favorite cookies in the world are Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. I love ’em! But for some reason I tend to think about making them in the fall. I think it has something to do with comfort food, and to me, oatmeal raisin cookies are the ultimate comfort food! But today, I thought you might enjoy a little change so I traded out the raisins for some nice, creamy, caramel bits! I think you are going to enjoy this tasty combination! I also drizzled some fall colors over these cookies to help you celebrate the spirit of the season!!

Oatmeal Caramel Cookies

1/2 cup + 6 tablespoons softened Butter

3/4 cup firmly packed Brown Sugar 1/2 cup Sugar 2 Eggs 1 teaspoon Vanilla 1 1/2 cups Flour 1 teaspoon Baking Soda 1 teaspoon Cinnamon 3 cups Quick Cooking Oats 1 1/2 cups Caramel Bits

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Beat butter and sugar on medium speed until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla and beat well.  In a separate bowl, mix together your flour, baking soda,  and cinnamon.
Add oatmeal and mix well.
Add caramel bits and mix together with a spoon and spatula.
Place rounded tablespoons of dough onto your cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Let cool. Make your frosting. Squiggle frosting over your cookies. Let dry. Enjoy! Thanks for joining me today!
