    Have I mentioned how excited I am for Fall Cookie Week with Michael? It’s all I’ve been talking about the past month. I was talking with one of my neighbors at our lake cottage about it and she said she would love some good cookie recipes with brickle. I didn’t want to disappoint her, but I had to look up what brickle was. I had heard the term a time or two, but I’ve always referred to it as toffee.

    I thought it would be the perfect compliment to oatmeal to create chewy oatmeal brickle cookies. Chris originally said these were his favorite among the Fall Cookie Week contestants, but he started saying that with each cookie he took a bite into, which proves you can never trust a man with 18 dozen cookies around.

    Why Are My Cookies Flat?

    Don’t you just hate it when you pull out your baking sheet and your cookies have spread to much and they’re flat?! Usually this is because you’ve either added too much butter or too little flour or baking soda. Be sure to follow my measurements for this recipe and your brickle cookies will be perfect every time!

    How To Store Oatmeal Brickle Cookies

    As with all cookies, these are perfect when eaten warm out of the oven, but if you can’t get through that many they are easy to store. Simply place them in an air tight container for 3-4 days at room temperature and out of direct sunlight. You can also store them with a slice of bread to stop them from becoming too hard. Do not refrigerate them.
