Oh? Did you think I had a super-secret recipe for chocolate chip oatmeal cookies? Nope. I decrease the sugar and salt from the original recipe but that's about it. I ran out of brown sugar so these cookies are looking a little pale with just white sugar. They were still very good though!
Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
Adapted from the Original Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies
For 3 dozen cookies, you'll need:
2 1/4 cups flour (Sometimes I do half white and half whole wheat flour if I'm feeling healthy.)
2 sticks or 1 cup butter, softened at room temperature
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 12-oz package chocolate chips
1 cup oats
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
The butter must be softened at room temperature for ideal texture. Cream 2 sticks butter with 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1/2 cup white sugar, and 1/2 cup brown sugar. Beat in 2 eggs, 1 egg at a time.
Add 2 1/4 cups flour, 1 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt and beat again.
Add 1 package of chocolate chips and 1 cup oats and mix by hand with a wooden spoon.
Spoon 2-inch balls onto a cookie sheet. Bake for 9 to 12 minutes.
I like my cookies soft and chewy, so I remove them from the oven when the centers are slightly undone. Use a spatula to remove the cookies onto a cooling rack.
Eat right away for soft and gooey chocolate cookies, or save for later when the cookies will be soft and chewy.
That's the last recipe from lil' sis's 21st birthday bash.
