Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
1 ½ cups of packed brown sugar
1 cup butter (that is 2 sticks…canna butter can be substituted)
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups of quick cooking oats
1 ½ cups of flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips (that is half a bag)
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
*I recently discovered that if you cream the sugar, butter, egg and vanilla altogether before incorporating the dry ingredients it helps form a creamier/wetter dough consistency.
-Pre-heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, stir brown sugar and butter until blended. Stir in vanilla and egg until light and fluffy.
-Stir in oats, flour, baking soda and salt; stir in chocolate chips and nuts.
-Onto ungreased cookie sheet, drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart.
-Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly (2 minutes); remove from cookie sheet using a spatula and unto a wire rack (if you have one).
-Let them cool before eating or throwing in a ziplock.
