Oatmeal Orange Ginger Delights

I have trying to cook more out of my norm. I haven’t made focaccia in over 15yrs and had some packs of yeast I wanted to utilize. Sadly my mutant family consumed all of it before a picture was had. I plan on making it again next week so will do a picture and a post. I managed to save one cookie to photograph.

I had a hankering for oatmeal cookies.But chewy and dense, full of buttery rich flavor. I made the tastiest cookies. perfection and will not be around long.


Oatmeal Orange Ginger Delights


  • 1 cup Salted Butter, Softened
  • 2 cups Packed Dark Brown Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 1 cup All-purpose Flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 3 cups Old Fashioned Oats
  • 1/4 cup minced candied or crystallized ginger
  • 1 tb. dried minced orange peel

note: ginger and orange are optional.for ginger can substitute with 1/2 tsp of ground ginger and for orange peel can use 1/4 tsp orange extract.

Preheat the oven to 350 F.

In the bowl of an electric mixer (or using a hand mixer) beat together the butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, scraping the bowl after each one.

Mix together the flour, salt, and baking soda in a medium sized bowl. Add it into the creamed mixture in 2 to 3 batches, mixing it until just combined. Mix in the oats, ginger and fried orange peel until just combined.

Use your preferred size cookie scoop (or a regular spoon) to drop portions of dough onto a lightly greased cookie sheet, spacing them a couple inches apart. Bake for 12-13 minutes or until dark and chewy.
