Step 1Gather the ingredients.
Step 2Preheat the oven to 375 F. Lightly grease the cookie sheets or line them with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
Step 3Combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and the salt in a large bowl with a wire whisk. Set the bowl aside.
Step 4In a separate bowl, cream the butter and the sugar. Add the egg and vanilla. Combine completely. Slowly add flour mixture until it was well combined. Hand-stir the oats and the walnuts.
Step 5Drop 2 tablespoons of dough for on the prepared cookie sheets.
Step 6Bake the cookies for 12 to 14 minutes or until they are browned around the edges.
Step 7Take the sheets from the oven, and allow the cookies to cool on the sheets for 1 to 2 minutes.
Step 8Remove the Oatmeal Walnut Cookies to a wire rack to cool completely before storing them in a cookie jar with a loose lid. Notes: Most cookie recipes call for "ungreased cookie sheets." For those recipes, we recommend spraying your cookie sheet with cookie spray and wipe away any excess oil with a paper towel. This way you don't have to worry about scraping off your cookies.
