Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Recently I have been in the mood for a good old-fashioned oatmeal chocolate chip cookie.  This recipe was advertised as the “best oatmeal chocolate chip cookies” so I gave it a try and I would have to agree!  These cookies are thick, soft, chewy (even after a few days after baking) and perfectly hearty.

If you like nuts, I suppose you could add them, but I personally think nuts ruin any dessert.

Serving Size:  Makes about 12 large cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick)
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned whole rolled oats (not instant or quick cook)
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 heaping cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions

To the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the butter and sugars and beat on medium-high speed until creamed and well combined, about 4 min.  Add the egg and vanilla and beat until combined.  Add the oats, flour, cinnamon, baking soda,  salt, and beat on low speed until just combined.  Add the chocolate chips and beat on low speed until just combined, about 30 seconds.

Prepare a cookie sheet(s) with parchment paper or a Silpat .  Using a large cookie scoop, large tablespoon or your hands, form approximately 12 equal-sized mounds of dough. Place the mounds on the lined cookie sheet(s) and flatten slightly.  Cover with plasticwrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.  Do not bake with unchilled dough because cookies will bake thinner, flatter, and be more prone to spreading.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake for about 10-11 minutes or until edges have set and tops are just set, even if slightly undercooked. Cookies will firm up as they cool.  Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for a few minutes and then move them to a cooling rack.

These cookies are delicious days after baking, but they are amazing warm out of the oven…enjoy:)
