Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Tonight I baked oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, which are delicious!

Here is the recipe, which I adapted from a couple I found on the internet:

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoons vanilla extract
Not quite 1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
chopped pecans
semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325. Cream softened butter and sugars together with electric mixer. Stir in vanilla. Add flour, baking soda, and salt. stir with a wooden spoon until moistened. Add oats. Stir and add chocolate chips and/or pecans to taste. Drop heaping spoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for approximately 18 minutes or until tops begin to crisp.

Yield: 2 dozen

Today’s photo was taken while being silly in our kitchen after making no-bake chocolate/peanut butter oatmeal cookies.

Also, for anyone who is interested here is the recipe Rachel made up for the cookies. They are quite tasty but very filling. Also, they are best served with a glass of milk!

  • 3 cups of oats
  • 3 tbsps cocoa
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • Heat butter milk and sugar in a small sauce pot on the stove. Let boil for one minute and then remove from heat. Place cocoa and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Pour heated mixture into the bowl and stir. Add the peanut butter and stir until melted/dissolved. While stirring, add the oats. Place heaping tablespoon sized portions on wax paper. Allow to sit for several minutes until cookies have “gelled.” Enjoy!

Note to self: remember to try this recipe with a handful of craisins sometime…
