Dark Brown Sugar Oatmeal Cookies are Dark Chewy Caramel Good!

Dark, Chewy, and Delicious.
Little did I know this weekend when I became bored with the politics of the day and switched the TV to the food channel only come across Ree Drummond making these wonderful cookies!  I fell in love with the simplicity of them and the luscious consistency.  My adaption was to use packed dark brown sugar and old fashioned oats which were not specified in her recipe.  These are "do agains" as my daughter-in-law calls them.

Ingredients for Dark Brown Sugar Oatmeal Cookies:

2 sticks (1 cup) room temperature butter
2 C. packed dark brown sugar
2 eggs
2 t. vanilla
1 1/2 C. flour
1 t. salt
1/2 t. baking soda
3 C. old fashioned rolled oats

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Prepare baking sheets with parchment paper or sil-pat mats and set them aside.

Using  a large mixing bowl combine the butter and sugar beating until fluffy.  Add the vanilla and eggs as you continue beating.

Combine the flour, salt, and soda whisking together and beat into the butter mixture.  Add the oats mixing until well combined.

Drop using a tablespoon scoop dipped in sugar between scoops for ease of dropping or a tablespoon of batter for each cookie leaving 2" between them.  Bake 12-14 minutes until brown and done.  Leave on the cookie sheet a few minutes to cool before removing.  Yield 3 1/2 dozen very yummy cookies.
