12
2 c. packed light brown sugar
2 sticks butter, softened
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 Tbsp. milk
2-1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
2 c. quick cooking oats
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Sift together the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar till light and fluffy. Add eggs, vanilla extract, and milk. Mix until well combined. With a wooden spoon, stir in the dry ingredients a little at a time, stirring just until incorporated. Stir in oats till well mixed. Drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets about 2 inches apart. Bake for approximately 9-11 minutes until very lightly browned on edges and the cookies do not look moist in the center. Allow cookies to cool on sheets for 3-5 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
