Rustic cookies are the best-looking cookies, no contest. What makes me love this particular recipe even more is that you can totally customize the end result. Take the trays out early for thick, chewy cookies or leave them in to get thinner treats with a crunchy crust. Either way you make them, these cookies are sure to be a crowd pleaser!
Here’s What You’ll Need:
- 2 sticks butter
- 1 ¼ cups brown sugar
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 ¾ cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 ½ cups oats
- 2 cups chocolate chips
- 1 cup slivered almonds
Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Line a flat cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Beat together the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar with the back of a spoon until the mixture is creamy.
Incorporate the eggs, milk, and vanilla into the mixture.
Add in the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix everything together.
Stir in the oats, chocolate chips, and almonds until they are evenly distributed throughout the dough.
For each cookie, take two heaped tablespoons of cookie dough and roll them into a ball in your hands.
Place the balls of cookie dough on your lined cookie sheet, making sure to leave some space in between each. The cookies will spread out in the oven as they bake.
For slightly thinner, wider cookies, you can help the process along by flattening the dough before you pop the trays in the oven. Press down on the dough with your fingers or the back of a spoon.
If you’re going for thicker cookies, leave the balls as they are. If you don’t flatten the dough, the cookies will end up about the same size as the base of a cupcake.
Bake the cookies for 8 minutes for thicker disks or up to 15 minutes for thinner, crunchier ones.
Once you take the trays out of the oven allow the cookies to cool for 1 minute on the cookie sheet. Then use a spatula to move the cookies to a wire rack to finish cooling down.
If you get the urge to test out this recipe, be sure to let me know how your cookies turn out! I can’t wait to hear what you think!
