The Perfect Cookie
I’ve always found oatmeal raisin cookies to be the most irritating raisin-containing dessert. Mostly because they’re so deceiving! Even up close, sometimes you can’t tell if it’s oatmeal raisin or oatmeal chocolate chip. And since I’m always looking for a cookie to put in my mouth, I’ve been duped too many times into believing I’ve got a chocolate chipper, when it’s really a raisin cookie instead.
Luckily for all the anti-raisin cookie lovers out there – there is no mistaking these turtle oatmeal cookies for their raisin relatives! You can actually see the chocolate, caramel, and pecans. And you’ll thank me for this recipe before you finish your first bite. It is that good.
How to Make Turtle Oatmeal Cookies
These cookies are not only delicious, they couldn’t be any easier to make! Here is how –
- In a stand mixer, beat together butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar for about 30 seconds.
- Add baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon. Beat until combined.
- Add eggs and vanilla, beating until combined and scraping down the sides.
- Beat in as much flour as you can with the mixer, using a wooden spoon to mix in the rest.
- Stir in the oats, rolos, chocolate chips, and pecans.
- Drop by rounded tablespoons onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
- Bake at 375° for 8-10 minutes, until edges are golden.
