oatmeal chocolate chip cookies

there's just something about
coming home from school
and smelling fresh-baked cookies
that your mom has greeted you with
and since they're oatmeal
you can feel a teeny tiny bit better
serving them to your kiddies

(who am i kidding? they're full of all the good stuff
that makes cookies, well cookies)


2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg at room temperature
1 egg yolk, at room temperature
1 tbsp vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


heat oven to 325 degrees. beat butter and sugars together in a mixing bowl until creamy. add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla. place the flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl. mix well and add to butter mixture. beat until well mixed. add chocolate chips. form dough balls into heaping tablespoon size balls and place them 2 in. apart on greased cookie sheet. using your palm, press down gently. bake at 325 degrees until cookies begin to brown at edges, 12 to 15 minutes. do not overbake. cool on cookie sheet and transfer to wire rack. serve with big glass of cold milk to your hungry little school children while you learn about their adventures from school. recipe adapted from family circle
