Recipe Round Up: Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Now, Everyone loves a good chocolate chip cookie, and what's better than a chocolate chip cookie with the added wholesomeness of whole rolled oats?  This recipe will become a regular in your house and everyone will be running to the kitchen to enjoy one of these fabulous cookies.

1 cup butter, softened (not melted)
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon
3 cups whole rolled oats
1/2 (11.5oz)package chocolate chips (I prefer dark chocolate)

Using an electric mixer cream together butter, white sugar, and brown sugar. Beat in the eggs one at a time.  Mix in the flours, by the half cup.  Mix in the baking soda and salt.  Using a spoon, stir in the cooking oats.  Add the chocolate chips and stir well.  Chill the dough for at least an hour. 

Preheat oven to 350.  Remove dough from refrigerator.  Prepare baking sheet with oil of choice (I use olive) and spoon dough onto the baking sheet by tablespoon, about 1-2inches apart. 

Bake for 7-9 minutes until edges just start to brown.  Remove from oven and allow cookies to sit for a minute or so.  Remove cookies to cooling rack, (if you can resist the urge to eat one right away), and allow to cool for another 5 minutes.  ENJOY!

 “Think what a better world it would be if we all, the whole world, had cookies and milk about three o'clock every afternoon and then lay down on our blankets for a nap.”
