these cookies are crunchy, crispy, chewy, and classic. I won't be that blogger that swears every recipe I make is the greatest thing on Earth. These cookies won't change your life, they may not win an award, but they will put a smile on your face and satisfy your sweet tooth. However, when making these cookies it should be known have at least 2 gallons of milk in your house, or you'll probably wind up in severe depression. These cookies are milk's best friend, watch out Oreo these are perfect for dunkin'.
I'll be honest, I have no idea where this recipe came from. I found it written down on a half sheet of yellow lined paper from a legal pad.
-1 1/2 c flour
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp baking powder
-2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
-1 c brown sugar
-1 c white sugar
-3 c oats
-1 1/2 c chocolate chips
That's it. That's all it said. Do you see a problem with it? I do. Where's the vanilla?? I added 2 tsp of vanilla for peace of mind. Also, I added one cup of chocolate chips and a half cup of chocolate chunks... because I had them. If this is your top secret million dollar oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe, and I just raptor snatched it and posted it online for the whole world to see... I apologize. Okay, I don't actually apologize, you can track me down and yell at me, and I'll probably laugh in your face for neglecting vanilla. Moowhohaha!
On a less sassy note, in case you need further direction:
-in a large bowl combine flour, salt, and baking powder and set aside.
-cream together butter and sugars in stand mixer with paddle attachment on high for 3 minutes until mixture becomes light and fluffy.
-add eggs one at a time, and then drop in that vanilla.
-add the flour mixture slowly, until fully incorporated.
-take bowl off mixture, add chocolate, and oatmeal. get your arm ready and start folding it all together.
portion cookies to your preference with portioning tool of your choice on a parchment lined baking sheet and and bake at 350 F for 15 mins.
