Find Comfort In Oatmeal.

Sometimes, there's just nothing better than good old-fashioned oatmeal cookies.
Especially, in these times, when everything is up in the air and you can't take anything for granted, and you yearn for a simpler life, you can still make oatmeal cookies.  And for just a little while, things are as they should be.  

Oatmeal Cookies
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups oatmeal

Heat oven to 375°.
Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper
In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
Place butter in medium mixing bowl and beat until creamy.  Beat in both sugars until well combined.  Add egg and vanilla and continue beating on medium speed for a minute or so, until mixture is light.
On low speed, beat in flour mixture until just combined.  
Stir in oatmeal, until combined.
Place heaping tablespoons of dough onto baking sheets.  Gently press into flat rounds, 1/8 -1/4" thick. 
Bake about 10 minutes, until top is just set.  Let sit on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to rack to cool.
