Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

*** i loove these cookies. that's all there is to say. they're great to freeze too! i just use my scoop and then freeze the dough, throw it in a bag, and bake off a few whenever i want a fresh, hot cookie! (add about 3-5 minutes cooking time if you use them straight from the freezer)

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
from The Joy of Cooking

  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 lb softened butter
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 1/2 cups rolled whole oats
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Sift (sifting is important!) flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into a mixing bowl.
  3. Beat butter, brown sugar, sugar, eggs, and vanilla with a hand mixer at medium speed.
  4. Put flour mixture into butter mixture and mix well.
  5. Stir in chocolate chips and oats.
  6. Spoon 1.5 inch balls onto non-stick cookie sheet. ( I use an ice cream scoop for even size cookies)
  7. Bake at 350°F for 6-9 minutes, rotating half way through baking. (Should be lightly firm in the center when done)
