Lemon Oatmeal Sugar Cookies

I'm closing out #BacktoSchoolTreats Week with something that's always a winner here- cookies! They are by far my favorite thing to bake, and I'm always on the hunt for new recipes to try out on my guys.

I found these Lemon Oatmeal Sugar Cookies by Susan M. on the Taste of Home Website. I didn't make any changes to the recipe, but rather than flattening them with a sugared glass, I scooped them and rolled them in raw sugar before placing them on the baking sheet.

I love how these turned out, great flavor and texture and oats also make them acceptable for breakfast, right? 

Thanks again to Terri from Love & Confections and Christie from A Kitchen Hoor's Adventures and to all of the awesome bloggers who shared recipes for #BacktoSchoolTreats Week!  Check out their contributions using the links down below.

Lemon Oatmeal Sugar Cookies
Author: Jolene Martinelli


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Additional sugar


  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, lemon zest and lemon juice.
  2. In another bowl, whisk flour, oats, baking powder and salt; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Refrigerate, covered, 2 hours or until firm enough to shape.
  3. Preheat oven to 375°. Shape level tablespoons of dough into balls; place 2 in. apart on parchment-lined baking sheets.
  4. Coat bottom of a glass with cooking spray, then dip in sugar. Press cookies with bottom of glass to flatten, redipping in sugar as needed.
  5. Bake until edges are light brown, 6-8 minutes. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.

authorHello, my name is Cherine, but you can call me "Chicho" :) I am Lebanese and I live in Paris. Welcome to my internet kitchen, grab a cup of coffee, a macaron and get comfy! This blog is my recipe journal. It's where I write about the recipes that intersect my everyday life. Often the recipes are from my cookbook collection, my magazines, my favorite blogs... sometimes not, they might come from my mother, a friend, a neighbour... or I might write about a recipe I invented myself.
