Danish Oatmeal Cookies


These are amazing cookies – unlike any oatmeal cookie you may have tried before. Feather light, crisp and buttery … my new favorites! 

1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup rolled oats (not quick cooking)
1 cup chopped pecans
Additional confectioner’s sugar for sprinkling

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper

Whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. In a separate large bowl, with an electric mixer, cream together the butter, 1 cup confectioners’ sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Stir in the flour mixture; gently stir in the oatmeal and pecans and lightly mix until just combined.

With a spoon, drop dough by slightly rounded teaspoons onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake until lightly browned, about 20 minutes. Remove to rack and let cool completely. Sift confectioner’s sugar over the cookies before serving.
