|My first attempt at these cookies - FAIL!!|
Super Amazing Giant Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
Recipe adapted from HGTV Magazine
1 3/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 sticks butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups chocolate chips
1 1/4 cups rolled oats
Preheat oven to 375F and line two large baking sheets with parchment paper. Beat the butter and sugar together for two minutes, until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until just incorporated. Scrape the edge of the bowl and mix again to make sure it all comes together.
Add the flour, baking soda and salt and mix until combined. Next, stir in the chocolate chips and rolled oats.
Form the dough into balls of about 4 tbsp each (for me, this meant a heaping scoop of my large cookie scoop). Arrange the dough onto the parchment lined baking sheets approximately 2 inches apart. *** This is the most important step!! These cookies spread out a LOT, so make sure to space them well. I used a large cookie sheet and only had 14 cookies on each sheet.
Bake until the cookies are lightly browned on the edges, approximately 15 minutes. Let cool for for two minutes then remove to baking rack to cool completely.
I hope you all love these cookies as much as the girls and I do!! Thanks for stopping by, I hope I have inspired you today!
