Welcome to Day 1 of my Christmas Cookie Countdown. I’ll be posting a different Christmas Cookie recipe every day from now until Christmas. Today’s cookie is Holiday Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. These are wonderful oatmeal cookies with the added goodness of nuts and chocolate chips. The addition of Holiday themed M&M’s make them festive.
Holiday Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup butter
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 Tbsp milk
2 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups oats
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup Holiday M&M’s chocolate candies
1 cup coarsely chopped nuts
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Beat first six ingredients until smooth. Combine oats, flour, soda and salt; add to butter mixture. Stir in remaining ingredients. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 3” apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes for chewy or 10-12 minutes for crispy. Cool 2 minutes and remove to rack to finish cooling.
