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 :-)
Chewy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
Original recipe makes 3 1/2 dozen
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
- 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.
- Bake for 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
I will definitely be making these again!
