Shelly's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Total Time

This recipe is from my Aunty Shelly, and has proven to be the best and quickest chocolate chip cookie recipe I have found. (and I'm a cookie monster!) I always set the timer for 6 minutes so as not to overcook them. Usually 6 - 7 minutes is enough - this way they end up soft and chewy, not crunchy. I have also added 3/4 cup oatmeal, which adds a nice crunch and is very tasty as well!

I easily halved this recipe and using a Tablespoon got 2 dozen good sized cookies! They're a very soft cookie and taste wonderful! As suggested, I used maybe an extra 1/4 cup of flour so the dough wasn't quite so sticky and I did bake mine a couple extra minutes because I like a more golden looking cookie. Thanks for sharing this super easy recipe, its always fun to eat oatmeal this way! :)
