Quick Maple Oatmeal Cookies #ChristmasCookiesWeek

 Christmas Cookies are my favorite food group!  I am excited to share cookies with you this week from bloggers who love Christmas as much as we do here. Come back to see posts Monday-Friday, with recipes from me on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.

Today I am sharing Quick Maple Oatmeal Cookies.  This is a simple cookie but a big hit for those who like a chewy cookie with a hint of maple syrup.  

To make these, my best and biggest tip is to have all the ingredients at room temperature. You will be surprised at how much of a difference this makes in the texture of your cookie dough.  The recipe for this cookie is posted below.

Here are the cookie offerings from the other bloggers that I promised you!  Tell me which ones you are going to try!

Quick Maple Oatmeal Cookies

This oatmeal cookie is chewy and soft.


  • 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cup softened butter 
  • 1 cup packed light or dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon dark molasses
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons pure maple flavoring
  • 3 cups old-fashioned whole rolled oats


  1. Whisk the dry ingredients together: flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt together in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl using a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter on medium-high speed until smooth, about 1 minute. Add the brown sugar and granulated sugar and beat on medium-high speed until creamed, about 2 minutes. Add the eggs, molasses, and vanilla and beat on high speed until combined, about 1 minute. Scrape down the sides and beat again as needed to combine.
  3. Add the dry ingredients and beat well.
  4. Preheat oven to 350°F. Use a large cookie dough scoop, about 3 Tablespoons of dough per cookie, and place 4 inches apart on the baking sheets. Bake for 13-14 minutes or until lightly browned on the sides. The centers will look very soft.
  5. Remove from the oven and allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. 


If you plan to refrigerate the dough for more than a few days, let it sit out for 30 minutes to soften before scooping.

Baked cookies freeze well for up to 3 months.

Unbaked cookie dough balls freeze well for up to 3 months. Bake frozen cookie dough balls for an extra minute.
