Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cookies have always been a weakness for me.  A fresh-out-of-the-oven, melt-in-your-mouth cookie is my favorite! I am an advocate of making sure to under-cook the cookies so they have that melt-in-your-mouth gooey goodness. This cookie recipe is our family's FAVORITE!!! They are completely divine. This recipe makes a ton of dough so you can easily have enough to eat some dough (yes, it is a must!), make plenty of cookies, and have some dough left to freeze for quick cookies another day.   INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 cup cane sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3 cups flour, sifted (if you don't sift the flour, then use 2 and 1/4 cups)
  • 3 cups oats
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix the sugar, brown sugar, and butter. In a separate bowl, mix the eggs and vanilla, and then add that mixture to the butter/sugar mix. In a separate bowl, mix the salt, baking soda, and baking powder, and then add that mixture to the butter/sugar/eggs/vanilla mixture. Add the flour to the mix, and once thoroughly mixed-in, add the oats. Once the oats are mixed-in, add the chocolate chips. Form the dough into 1- or 1.5-inch balls and place on a cookie sheet. Place the cookie sheet in the oven and cook for 8 minutes, or until done to your liking. If they look "done" when you pull them out of the oven, you probably left them in too long. Remember: the cookies will continue to cook on the pan after you pull them out of the oven. It's best to let the dough sit in the fridge for at least an hour, but I always put a pan full of cookies in the oven before putting the rest of the dough in the fridge. Enjoy!
