Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
Earlier this week, I asked Eila Bean what we should do on our day together. Her first suggestion was, of course, BAKE COOKIES!
So off to my tried and true recipe binder where the actual meal items encompass about the first 1/3 of the binder and the Dessert Section is split into its own three sections: Cupcakes and Cake Recipes, Frostings and Fillings, and Cookies and Bars.
I would love to say that my recipe binder is lovely and color coded and set up all pretty, but it's not. It's covered in schmears of butter, notes about how long to actually cook the recipe for, and how many cups of this and that you need to double or triple a particular recipe.
I have been baking these particular cookies for years. The recipe is so easy, Eila can make them almost on her own (see demo below). They are soft, chewy and delicious. I brought them into work and they were gone in a half hour!
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 cups rolled oats
2 cups chocolate chips
Cream butter and sugar together. Beat in eggs one at a time. Add vanilla.
Add remaining ingredients. Mix well.
Drop by spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheet. Bake in 350 F oven for 8-10 minutes. Makes 5 dozen cookies.
I usually store these in an airtight container, but they honestly don't last very long! Enjoy!
