An Easy One-Bowl Cookie Recipe
Sometimes I have zero desire to pull out my beloved KitchenAid mixer. As fabulous as it is for baking, sometimes I want to throw everything into a bowl, give it a mix, and call it a day. Am I alone? I can’t be! For the sole reason of ease, I’ve created this super simple one-bowl recipe. You literally only need one bowl.
How To Make Chewy Cookies
The key to a chewy cookie is in the ingredients. Sugar type and fat source to be exact. This recipe calls for brown sugar and butter the two factors that will help in producing a chewy cookie texture and consistency. Both butter and brown sugar contain softening properties which add moisture to the cookie dough. More moisture means a chewier cookie. A higher oat to flour ratio is also going to help produce an ultra chewy cookie texture.
So first grab a large mixing bowl. Second, get out the ingredients. And third, bake up a batch of these super easy one-bowl cherry oatmeal cookies. You won’t regret it. Chewy cookies with a crisp edge loaded with dried tart cherries and white chocolate chips. A cherry oatmeal cookie recipe that you’ll be baking on repeat whether it’s cherry season or not.
