How To Make Oatmeal Cookies Crispy?

  1. Preheat oven to 375º and line two cookies sheets with parchment paper
  2. Add both sugars to a large mixing bowl, and whisk in butter
  3. Add in egg and vanilla extract, and whisk until completely incorporated
  4. Stir in rolled oats, flour, and salt
  5. The mixture will be thinner than typical cookie dough
  6. Scoop by the tablespoon onto parchment-lined baking sheets with at least 2 inches between each cookies – they’ll spread a lot
  7. Bake in preheated oven for 5-7 minutes until lightly golden
  8. Remove from oven and allow to cool on the baking sheet for 1-2 minutes to set
  9. Remove to a wire rack to finish cooling

Storing Your Crispy Oatmeal Cookies:

Once you’ve baked your batch of crispy oatmeal cookies, storage is key to maintaining their delightful crunch. At room temperature, these cookies can last for about a week when stored correctly. 

An airtight container or a cookie jar with a tight seal is your best bet to prevent them from becoming stale.

If you live in a particularly humid climate, consider storing your cookies with a slice of bread in the container. It may sound strange, but the bread will absorb excess moisture and keep your cookies crisp. Remember, the goal is to prevent any moisture from reaching your cookies, as it will soften their perfect crunch.

Freezing and Reheating Your Crispy Oatmeal Cookies:

If you want to make a big batch and save some for later, these cookies freeze well too. To freeze, place the cooled cookies in a single layer on a baking sheet and put them in the freezer. Once frozen, transfer them to a freezer-safe bag or container. This method prevents the cookies from sticking together.

When you’re ready to enjoy your frozen cookies, there’s no need to thaw them. Simply preheat your oven to 300°F (150°C) and heat the cookies for about 10 minutes. This will help them regain their crispness without overcooking them.

Variations and Baking Tips:

Feeling adventurous? You can easily add your own twist to these crispy oatmeal cookies. Consider adding chocolate chips, dried fruit, or nuts for an extra layer of flavor and texture. Just be sure to add these extras in moderation to maintain the crispiness of the cookies.

When it comes to baking, remember that all ovens are different. Start checking your cookies a few minutes before the recommended baking time. They should be golden brown around the edges when done. And most importantly, let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack. This helps them set and maintains their crispy texture.
