Cookie Week: Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

December 2, 2013

There is something extremely comforting about oatmeal cookies, all warm and chewy and fresh out of the oven. I've always been a fan, but since most people put raisins in them, I rarely eat them. To remedy that, I've started making them myself, and instead of raisins, I mix in two different kinds of chocolate chips for cookies that could blow any chocolate lovers' mind. Bonus, they're great with coffee!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed light brown sugar 
½ cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1¼ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups quick cooking oats
1 cup chopped walnuts
(generous) ½ cup each semi-sweet and milk chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325°. In a large bowl, cream the softened butter and both sugars until smooth, then beat in the eggs, one at a time, and add the vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt, then stir that into the creamed mixture until just blended. Mix in the oats, walnuts, and chocolate chips.

Drop by the spoonful onto ungreased baking sheets and bake for 12 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes and enjoy!
