Oatmeal Crackle Cookies – Sweet oatmeal cookies packed with shredded coconut, and topped with a crackled powdered sugar top
Oatmeal cookie haters, take a seat and just trust me on this one.
If my Salty Oatmeal Cookies didn’t change your mind about oatmeal cookies, then I guarantee these will. And if they don’t, then you have a heart of stone and I don’t know what in the world could ever make you happy.
These cookies are fantastic for 3 reasons:
- They’re rolled in powdered sugar.
- They have an amazing texture- crispy on the edges and chewy in the middle.
- They’re made by the Pastry God herself, Christina Tosi.
I’m sure a lot of you know that the Netflix Original Series Chef’s Table just released an entire season about pastry, and the first episode was about Milk Bar (!!!). Christina Tosi has been my pastry hero since before I went to culinary school, so I’m really excited about it. And it didn’t disappoint! It was really awesome and beautifully filmed and super inspiring to someone who plans on opening a bakery soon (me).
Also, I posted a photo of these cookies on my Instagram and Christina Tosi liked it. No big deal.
So I made these oatmeal crackle cookies because I’m really happy about everything in life right now, and also because I’m addicted to them. True story.
