Oatmeal Cookies Yum Yum Yum!

Ingredients: 2 cups uncooked oats
                     1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
                     3/4 tsp baking soda
                     1/2 tsp baking powder
                     1 cup brown sugar
                     3/4 cup and 1 tbs butter
                     1/4 cup granulated sugar
                     1 egg
                     1 tbs honey
                     1 1/4 tsp vanilla

    Heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine dry ingredients, oats, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and flour in one bowl. Next in a separate bowl, mix butter with brown sugar and granulated sugar until fluffy. Next add the honey, egg, and vanilla to the sugar mixture. Then add in the dry mixture on low. If you add the dry mixture in and mix it too much, you will OVERWORK YOUR MIX. You don't want that to happen, so keep your speed on low and make sure that all the ingredients are mixed in well. Place on a greased cookie sheet or wax papered cookie sheet in whatever amounts you like. Bake for 11-15 mins and your done!

Tips: Please do not simply mix the sugar and butter for 30 secs and throw the rest of the ingredients in, I can't stress how important it is for you to mix it until you notice it become fluffy and looks like icing. It'll look so good when it's fluffy, that you'll want to eat it.

Also, when mixing all your ingredients together for your dough, try not to overwork it by being rough with it and trying to get it done too quickly. When baking you must take you time so your product looks and tastes well and delicious.
