I found a cookie recipe that I like, Oatmeal with choc. chips. The thing I like is the chewy texture. But they are too sweet for me. If I reduce the sugar significantly (instead of 1 cup brown & white, maybe 3/4 cup -both) on small recipe - 15-20 large cookies) would it change the texture?
I like chewy cookies, but don't like them overly sweet.
Here is the recipe.
Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
makes 15-20 cookies
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cups rolled oats
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 1/4 cups chocolate chips
optional: 1- 2 tablespoons milk, if dough is crumbly
Preheat oven to 375.
Beat butter and sugars with an electric mixer until smooth. Add egg and
vanilla, mixing well until combined, about 2 minutes. Stir in flour,
baking powder, salt, and 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon with the mixer on
medium speed. Beat in oats. Mix until dough comes together. Add in 1
tablespoon milk if the dough is crumbly. If dough is still crumbly, add
milk 1 tablespoon at a time until it comes together. Fold in chocolate
chips. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Remove dough from fridge and roll into big 1 1/2 inch balls. Set on a
baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Lightly press down on dough to
flatten it. Bake at 375 for 9-11 minutes.
