Christina Tosi's oatmeal cookies

I've never had any special idols that I could follow in my life, but if I were forced to name one person close to that, it would definitely be Christina Tosi. Her Milk Bar is one of a kind and the sweet stuff which she brings to life there is simply amazing (cereal milk ice cream? YES PLEASE). Christina herself is truly a woman of passion, great imagination and love for everything full of sugar and butter. Testing her recipes is my favourite thing to do so I just wanted to share one with you. 

Makes 18 cookies:

- 200g (14 tbsp) butter, softened
- 80g (1/2 cup) brown sugar
- 80g (1/2 cup) granulated sugar
- 2 free-range eggs
- vanilla
- 150g (1+1/4 cup)
- 200g (2 cups) old-fashioned oats
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt

+ powdered sugar for coating

1. Preheat the oven to 190C/375F.

2. Beat the butter with sugars until pale and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix again to combine. Then mix in the flour, oats, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. 

3. Using an ice cream scoop, measure the dough and form it into a golf-sized ball. Coat evenly with powdered sugar and place on a baking tray, 5cm apart. 

4. Bake for 9-10 minutes, or until golden brown. Leave to cool completely.
