Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
This recipe is from my aunt Becca who gets requests all of the time from family to make these. She mixes them by hand, so I do too. They'd probably turn out just as well using a mixer though. The butter in the recipe really makes them good. This recipe makes quite a few so feel free to halve the recipe or make it all and freeze the cookies for another day.

- 2 cups butter, no substitutes
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 cups packed light brown sugar

- In a separate bowl, combine flour, oats, salt, baking soda and baking powder.
- Gradually stir into creamed mixture.

Fantastic! I used my mixer to cream the butter and sugar ( I think that makes for a lovely texture in the final product) and to mix in the dry ingredients a bit and then I got my hands in there and mixed in the chips. I used a medium sized ice cream type scoop (Pampered Chef) and it made a nice sized cookie and yielded 75 cookies which I baked for 11-12 minutes. The cookies were a hit at the bake sale I took them too! The texture was amazing! Crispy edges and chewy interior, yum!Reply
