If you’ve never been caught with your hand in the cookie jar, then you haven’t had a cookie this good. Brown sugar adds a great flavor to these classic favorites.
1½cupsquick-cooking rolled oats
¾cupunbleached all-purpose flour
8tablespoons (1stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
½cup (packed) light brown sugar
¼cup chopped walnuts
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease baking sheets.
Toss the oats, flour, cinnamon, and baking soda together in a bowl.
Cream the butter and both sugars together in a mixing bowl until light. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Then slowly beat in the dry ingredients, then the currants, and walnuts.
Drop the batter by rounded teaspoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto the prepared baking sheets and bake until golden, 10 minutes. Leave the cookies on the baking sheets for 2 minutes; then transfer them to wire racks to cool.
