Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies Recipe
Recipe type: Dessert
This Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies recipe is a favorite in our house! There's a funny story about these cookies...
  • 1 cup of butter (2 sticks) softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tspn vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1-1½ cups chocolate chips (depends on how chocolatey you want them!)
  • 3 cups quick cooking oats
  1. In your mixer (I love my KitchenAid!) or with a hand mixer, beat the butter and sugars together until creamy.
  2. Beat in one egg at a time.
  3. Add the vanilla.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until creamy and combined.
  6. Now mix in your oatmeal and chocolate chips. Cookie dough will be thick!
  7. Refrigerate dough for about 15-20 minutes and preheat your oven to 350.
  8. Drop by generous tablespoonful onto an ungreased baking sheet about an inch apart (they don't spread much).
  9. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Cool on a wire rack and serve warm with a tall glass of milk!
