Oatmeal-Chocolate Chip Cookies

Don't be fooled- these cookies should really be called Chocolate Chip Cookies with Oats. They don't have any of the spice of regular oatmeal cookies, and raisins would be a very strange addition. And the dough might be even better than the cookies themselves. Just thinking about it makes me want to stuff a few more cookies into my already bulging belly...too bad our oven died midway through the second batch. I guess I'll have to settle for dough.

1 1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
2 cups quick oats
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large bowl, beat sugar and butter together until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and egg.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine oats, flour, soda and salt. Add to butter mixture and stir just until blended.
  4. Stir in chocolate chips.
  5. Drop onto ungreased cookie sheets and bake 9-11 minutes or until light brown.

We regularly bake oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. We definitely have a favorite recipe. I'll give this one a try and give you my comparison.

These give oatmeal cookies a good name. Delicious!

The cookies look wonderful, and the stacking is impressive. But I know a four-year-old (ACRL) who could easily build a stack twice that high. He's very experienced.
