Oatmeal Cookies

Today Valarie made old fashioned oatmeal cookies with chocolate chips instead of raisins. Boy they were good! I decided to share the recipe. It is from my Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book page 188. (sometimes you can not eat what Valarie cooks!) I am not sure what year this book is published. I have had it since 1999 or 98.

Oatmeal Cookies
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional) [haha Allison!]
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 cups rolled oats (old fashioned oats, not quick oats)
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

1. in a large mixing bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed 30 seconds. Add brown sugar, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon. Beat until all combined and scrape sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in the eggs vanilla until all combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in remainder of flour, then stir in the oats and chocolate chips.
2. Drop dough by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 10 - 12 minutes or till edges are golden. C ool cookies on a wire rack. Yield 48.

Val did a great job on these, and she is very proud of herself!

See you next time!
Y'all have a great day!
