Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
- 0.5 cup butter or margarine (softened by briefly microwaving)
- 0.5 cup brown sugar
- 0.75 cup white sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 eggs
In a large mixing bowl, beat the above ingredients together until they are light and fluffy. In a separate bowl, mix the following dry ingredients, then stir them into the wet ingredients:
- 2.25 cup flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 0.5 tsp salt
Finally, stir in:
- 1 cup oatmeal
- 1 cup chocolate chips
Drop (approximately 24-30 cookies) onto two ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375 degrees F for 10 minutes.
Note: These cookies will be on the pale side when you take them out of the oven -- they should look almost undercooked, as they will harden further as they cool. Don't bake them for longer than 10-12 min or you'll have hard cookies rather than chewy ones!
Hope you like these cookies as much as I do. For chewier cookies try increasing the butter to 0.75 cup (the original recipe asked for 1 cup).
