Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Have a sudden craving for Subway Cookies but was worried about the nutritional value of the cookies as I'm currently breastfeeding and don't want too much sugar to get into the milk. So I decided to baked my own cookies. Got this recipe from All and modified it a little to make it more nutritious. The cookies was really crispy in the outside and soft inside, yummy...

Soft Oatmeal Cookies
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar & 1/2 white sugar (I replace with 3/4 cup light muscovado sugar that I bought from NTUC)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cups all-purpose flour (I used unbleached flour)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 tbs wheatgerm (I added this for the additional nutrients)
  1. In a medium bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Beat in egg, then stir in vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda, salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Mix in oats, raisins and wheatgerm. Cover, and chill dough for at least one hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets. Roll the dough into walnut sized balls, and place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets. Flatten each cookie with a large fork dipped in sugar.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
Afternote: it's now 3rd day and the biscuit now taste even softer and moist, yummy...
