I'm not quite sure where this cookie recipe originated. All I know is that my family has been making it ever since I was little. These cookies are great fresh out of the oven or even frozen in the freezer. I know that sounds weird to eat a frozen cookie, but don't frown on something you haven't tried!
What you need:
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
3 cups flour
1/2 cup oatmeal
1 Bag Milk Chocolate Chips (Guittard is my favorite brand)
In a mixing bowl beat until creamed 1 cup of butter (softened in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds).
Add: sugar and brown sugar; mix
Add: vanilla, eggs, and salt; mix
Add: baking soda, flour, oatmeal, and chocolate chips; mix
Bake at 350 degrees for about 10-15 minutes (until cookies are slightly browned on top)
