I have always been a cookie monster. Cooookieees.
Here is my favorite oatmeal and chocolate chip cookie recipe:
2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup butter (or margarine)
2 tsp cinnamon
1 table spoon vanilla extract (or imitation vanilla)
2 cups packed dark brown sugar
2 large eggs (wash egg shells prior to use)
18 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup oatmeal
1 cup nuts (walnuts or pecans)
Preheat: oven to 375 degrees
Combine: flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a small bowl. Beat butter, sugar, and vanilla extract. Add two eggs (shells cleaned so that cookie dough is safe to eat), blending until smooth. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Transfer mixture to a larger bowl add chocolate chips, oatmeal and nuts and mix completely.
Bake: 9 to 11 minutes until golden brown.
Makes about 4 dozen.
