Patrick O'Connell's Oatmeal Cookie recipe

  • 4

This past Friday night Dh and I stayed at The Inn at Little Washington and while we were there picked up some oatmeal cookies from their shop. Simply put, they are the best oatmeal cookies I've ever had (and I'm an oatmeal cookie freak) and would love the recipe. It's not in either of his cookbooks. They are chewy and topped with sea salt for a sweet and salty goodness.

  1. Someone posted a link to a recipe like that in June.

    See if that works for you. I just had my hands on it yesterday and was thinking about cookie baking looming in the not too distant future.

      This sounds very close to the recipe...thank you very much. The tailgating crew will love them.

        Hey, Janet, if you make the Post recipe and it does (or does not) approximate IALW, please post! I stayed at the Inn once a couple of years ago and the memory of those cookies remains vivid. I have clipped the Post recipe but not tried it yet.

        Thanks!

        I just finished baking these cookies. I love the oatmeal cookie part of it, much better than any other oatmeal cookies. The sea salt was...okay. They were fine and would have been great without it, too. I love that you only need one bowl and don't have to have dry and wet ingredients. Oh, one change I did make--I didn't have brown sugar (that's just one thing I always have, a lot of usually, and didn't check). I used regular white sugar and some molasses. They were very chewy, don't know if it's the recipe of my substitution but the recipe is definitely a keeper!
