Every time I make them they get eaten fast so I'll often make a double batch and keep one half in the fridge for a couple days and bake them later.
They're also quick and easy to make. The dough comes together in a flash and within 45 minutes or so the first batch is already cooling on the counter.
Step 1: Ingredients
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups old-fashioned oats
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Pre-heat oven to 350 F
Step 2: Mix It Up
- Mix the dry ingredients in a small bowl.
- Beat the sugars and the butter together in a second bowl until it is creamy and some peaks form.
- Beat in the eggs and the vanilla in the second bowl until combined
- Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in batches and beat it together until combined.
Step 3: Add the Fun
Step 4: Bake It!
Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup as a scoop for your dough.
Roll the dough into a ball and place it on the cookie sheet. Then press it down so that it's a thick disk.
Put in the oven for 14 to 16 minutes. I like my cookies to be a little chewier and softer so I tend to be on the short side. If you like it crunchier, leave it in a touch longer.
Step 5: Cool It!
This recipe yields about 20 cookies.
Step 6: Enjoy
Eat 'em up and plan out what you're going to cook next.
