As you might guess, the secret to soft, chewy cookies is partly in the bake time. Bake your cookies at 350 degrees for only about 8 to 10 minutes; when the edges and bottoms are just barely golden, pull them out of the oven. This technique works for most recipes, including our favorite chocolate chip cookies. Once you pull them out of the oven, remember that they’ll continue to cook a bit on the hot pan; the longer you leave them on the pan, the less likely it is that the finished cookies will be chewy.
Soft, chewy, and sweet oatmeal cookies are a perfect snack or even a breakfast treat, and they don’t take long to bake at all! Set your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. It should take between 10 and 15 minutes to bake your oatmeal cookies to the perfect consistency. Suppose you prefer your cookies to be on the crispier side rather than chewy. In that case, you may want to keep them in the oven closer to the 15-minute mark to ensure it reaches your desired consistency. It can be challenging to figure out the perfect consistency for your oatmeal cookies. If they are too hard and crunchy, you may have mixed your batter incorrectly, even at a low cook time. So it’s essential to double-check your recipe while baking!
