DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350º.
  • Mix flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat butter and brown sugar until creamy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Gradually add flour mixture, beating until well blended. Stir in oats, chips, and nuts, if using.
  • Spoon 1/2-cup portions of dough onto greased baking sheets, spacing cookies 6 inches apart and 2 1/2 inches from edges of sheets. Grease bottom of a pie pan (I use cooking spray), dip in granulated sugar, and use to flatten each cookie into 5 inch circle. If necessary, press cookies lightly with your fingers to give them an even thickness.
  • Bake at 350º until edges are lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Let cool on baking sheets for about 5 minutes, then transfer to racks to cool completely.
