Apparently I'm not the only one in my house that liked the cookies. I gave my 2 older girls 2 cookies each and heard "Mom, can I have another cookie? Pleeeeeeease?!?" at least 100 times. I allowed them both to have another one (and one of them admitted this morning that she single handedly ate half of the cookies all by herself. You'd never know by looking at her, though). I figured the more everyone else ate, the fewer I would eat.
These Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are truly fantastic. I dare say they are the BEST I have ever had the pleasure of eating. They are chewy and buttery and just perfect.
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 1/4 cups flour
2 cups oatmeal (I used quick cook)
2 cups chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)
Cream together butter and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well. Add salt, baking soda, baking powder and flour and mix just until combined. Add oatmeal and morsels and mix well. Drop by rounded tablespoons, 2 inches apart, onto a greased baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes, or until just lightly browned around the bottom edges. Let cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before moving to a cooling rack.
