1 cup of butter (yup, that is two entire sticks)
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 1/4 cup of flour (add 1/4 for high altitude)
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt (optional)
1 1/2 cup of Quaker oats
1 package of chocolate chips
Heat oven to 375
Mix butter (softened), sugars, and egg together well.
Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt gradually (oops, clearly from the photo I did not stir these things in gradually, but they still turned out perfectly!).
Stir in chocolate chips and oatmeal.
Make inch round cookie dough balls and place on non-stick cookie sheet. Bake for 8-9 minutes and let them sit on the pan for a few minutes before taking them off (this is a lesson in self control).
And dig in! Husband loves these cookies :)
(By the way, baking is so much more fun with a cute apron on!)
