Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies


This is a classic cookie that is oh-so-satisfying for oatmeal cookie lovers and chocolate fans.  It is very simple to replace the chocolate chips with raisins for the traditional oatmeal raisin cookies, but if you are like us and want to have some chocolate with your oatmeal, this is one cookie recipe you will want to keep handy! 

INGREDIENTS

1/2 cup (1 stick) plus 6 tablespoons butter, softened
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
3 cups Quaker Oats (quick or old-fashioned, uncooked)
1 cup chocolate chips (the best kind to use are Ghirardelli semi-sweet chips)

DIRECTIONS

Heat oven to 350 degrees. 
In large bowl, beat butter and sugars on medium speed in electric mixer until creamy.
Add egg and vanilla; beat well.
Add combined flour, bakng soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well. 
Add oats and raisins.; mix well.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake 8-10 minutes or until light golden brown.  Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire rack.  Cool completely.  Store tightly covered.

Happy munching!
