This work week is seeming extra long after a 4-day week! Luckily i’m here to get you through the rest of the week with my favorite cookie recipe.
This is actually the oatmeal raisin cookie recipe from Quaker Oats, but it’s so much better as oatmeal chocolate chips cookies. I use an older recipe than the one on the Quaker website, but they’re pretty much the same.
- 1 cup margarine, softened
- 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt (optional)
- 3 cups Quaker Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
- 1 cup chocolate chips
Heat your oven to 350°. Beat together margarine and sugars until creamy. Next, add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Add combined flour, baking soda and salt; mix well. Stir in oats and chocolate chips; mix well. I have to add here that 1 cup of chocolate chips is never enough for me; I always do atleast 1½ cups. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. The cookies should look a little gooey still, if they don’t you’ve probably burnt them. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to wire rack. Makes about 4 dozen.
I love these so much more then regular chocolate chip cookies; the oats are actually filling so each cookie has some substance to it.
What’s your favorite type of cookie?
