Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Last night I was in the mood to make cookies.  It was perfect because my girls lifegroup leader had asked me to bring a dessert and I was more than happy to have a reason to bake.

 

I love baking but always find that I end up indulging too much when I have sweets in the house so I like the opportunity to bake for a special event and tonight was just that ;-)

I ran errands after work and picked up a bag of dark chocolate chips and knew instantly what I wanted to make. - Chewy Oatmeal Cookies!


I didn't have a recipe on hand so I googled "Best Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies" and the following recipe popped up on All-Recipes.  It was really really good! And the girls loved them :-)

  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture until just blended. Mix in the quick oats, walnuts, and chocolate chips. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.
