I know everyone loves their Chocolate Chip cookies, but sometimes you might crave a more plain and simple cookie. Still chewy and sweet. Like Vanilla Oatmeal Cookies : ) Those of you that pay attention will notice that these are similar to the Maple Oatmeal Cookies, previously featured on my little blog. Well they are basically the same recipe – just take out the chocolate and exchange the Maple Syrup for Vanilla Extract. Once I find a good recipe or method, I try to reuse it again – mixing it up a bit.
