On the Third Day of Christmas…Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Posted on

Oats. Good.

Chocolate. Good.

Butter. Good.

Cinnamon. Good.

These oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are yummy! I went with the chocolate chips instead of raisins because people tend to have visceral reactions to raisins. Big babies.

And I really like these cookies, from my red plaid Better Homes and Gardens cookbook. They’re chewy, not too sweet, and just plain good.

You should make them 🙂

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
(from Better Homes and Gardens)

3/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups rolled oats
1 to 2 cups semi-sweet chips

1. IPreheat oven to 375.

2. In a large mixing bowl beat butt on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour. Stir in rolled oats and chocolate chips.

3. Drop dough by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart onto an ungreased or parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 8 to 10 minutes until edges are golden. Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute. Transfer to wire wrack and let cool.
