Truly Excellent Chocolate Chip Cookies
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
1 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar (firmly packed)
1 tsp vanilla (oh, please! be generous with your vanilla- a Tablespoon at least!)
2 cups flour
2 1/2 cups oatmeal (ground finely; will be about 1 3/4 cups)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
12 oz chocolate chips
Whisk together flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
In separate bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Add in the flour mixture and mix. Add your chocolate chips last.
Roll walnut-sized balls (or use your scooper!) and place on ungreased cookie sheet about two inches apart and back for 10-12 minutes. (10 minutes gets you chewy cookies and 12 minutes gets crisper cookies.)
There you have it...Truly Excellent Chocolate Chip Cookies.
