Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Everyone once in a awhile I crave a oatmeal cookie.  It's not often.  But sometimes it happens. 

There is just something about a chewy oatmeal cookie that can be so satisfying.  But they must contain chocolate chips for me.  NOT raisins.  A warm chewy oatmeal cookie is the best snack. 

1/2 cup plus 6 tablespoon butter, softened
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups old fashion oats
1 cup chocolate chips

1.  Heat oven to 350F
2.  Cream butter and sugars on medium until creamy
3.  Add eggs and vanilla, beat until incorporated
4.  Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a separate bowl.
5.  Slowly add dry mixture to wet mixture
6.  Add oats and chocolate chips
7.  drop 2 tablespoons of dough onto cookies sheets covered with parchment paper
8.  Bake 8-10 minutes or until light golden brown.  Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets and then remove to wire racks. 

This recipe makes about 4 dozen cookies.  Perfect for sharing. 

Keep baking friends!
