Love Cookies

While FH napped away his jetlag (flew in from Scotland today, in case I never mentioned that before) I decided to make him a treat to pack along to Ontario with him.  He’s not sure what his living arrangement is when he gets there, but chances are it’s dormitory style with a bunch of other stinky boys…and there surely won’t be homemade cookies there!

Recipe:  Chewy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Courtesy of: my gal Heather (she came to the rescue with this recipe when I whined that my last few batches of choco chippers didn’t turn out)

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs (room temp is best)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 cups whole oats
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 300 grams chocolate chips (I prefer milk chocolate, but use whatever you like.  Even Glosette Raisins work well.)

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Cream butter, sugar and brown sugar in a large bowl.
  • Mix in eggs and vanilla.
  • In a separate bowl, combine flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  • Add dry mix to wet mix in a couple of stages, combining well.
  • Add chocolate chips, combine.
  • Roll dough into small balls and place 2 inches apart on lightly greased or parchment lined cookie sheets. (I placed in freezer for a few minutes to firm up because they are quite soft.)
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes until cookie bottoms are golden brown.
