Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip oatmeal is my favorite flavour for cookies. Nutty oatmeal and warm, sweet, gooey chocolate.  I find that most recipes are too sweet or greasy, but this one has a nice balance between all the flavours. This recipe makes about 3 dozen cookies, and freezes really well. I usually roll the dough into balls and then freeze them so that I can bake them off a few at a time so they are always fresh. 

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups rolled oats
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips, we prefer dark chocolate

1. Preheat oven to 325 F.
2. Cream together butter and sugars until smooth. 
3. Add eggs and vanilla and blend in.
4. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt. Stir in oats and chocolate chunks.
5. Drop by tablespoons onto a greased baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes, until golden brown around the edges.
6. Cool on a wire rack, if you can wait that long.

All you need now is a glass of ice cold milk.
