  3. Chocolate Chip & Oatmeal Refrigerator Cookies Recipe

Cookies are the great equalizer of the baking world. No matter if you’re a confident baker or someone who’s a little more timid, we’ve all made cookies. Easier yet are refrigerator cookies: stored together then formed into logs, wrapped and chilled, these are the original slice and bake cookie. I don’t really know why they’ve seemed to go by the wayside because in their heyday, they were the cookie everyone was making. And might I just say, these chocolate chip and oatmeal refrigerator cookies are far from boring. They’re completed with browned butter and brown sugar, making them a strong contender for a perfect cookie!

These cookies store extremely well in the freezer. So if you want to whip up a batch of the dough and then freeze it, go right ahead.

But come on, you’re just going to want to eat them all!

Chocolate Chip & Oatmeal Refrigerator Cookies

4 from 1 vote
Made with chocolate chips and oatmeal, these refrigerator cookies are pretty much slice and bake! Whip up a few batches, keep them in the freezer or refrigerator and whenever you have a cookie craving, pull these out to bake up!
Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 23 mins
Total Time 38 mins
Servings 24 cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup browned butter cooled
  • ½ cup white granulated sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 ½ cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips

Instructions
 

  • In a medium skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Allow to bubble and foam. After about 5 minutes, the foaming will lessen and the bottom of the skillet will show brown solids with the butter smelling nutty and looking golden. Scrape into a bowl and cool to a solid state.
  • Cream the cooled brown butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  • Add the egg and vanilla and mix to combine. Scrape sides of the bowl to ensure even mixing.
  • Add flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix just to combine.
  • Add rolled oats and chocolate chips. Mix to incorporate, finishing by hand to ensure it is well mixed.
  • Divide dough in half and shape each half into a log. Wrap in parchment paper, twist the ends shut, and place in the refrigerator or airtight container (if wanting to store longer than 1 hour).
  • When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Slice prepared cookies into ¼-inch thick and place on parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake until the edges are set and the centers are just soft, 8-12 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and cool on pan for 5 minutes.
