Recipe Notes

If Betty Crocker oatmeal cookie mix is not available, use this from-scratch oatmeal cookie base instead. Start with step 1 above. Skip step 2. In a large bowl of a stand mixer with a paddle attachment or using a handheld mixer, cream ½ cup of room-temperature butter and 1 cup of packed light or dark brown sugar together on medium-high speed until combined. In a separate bowl, whisk 1 and ⅓ cups of all-purpose flour, ½ teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, and 1 cup of whole oats together. Add these dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and beat on low speed until combined. Continue with step 3 above.
