I was in the mood to bake, but didn’t want to potchki. So, I found a recipe for chewy chocolate chip oatmeal cookies and decided to give it a whirl. So easy. So good. I omitted the nuts and instead added extra chocolate chips. They are perfect–crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside, and have a wonderful texture.
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups quick-cooking oats
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
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 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
Makes about 3 1/2 dozen.
