Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Perfect Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are soft and crispy around the edges and chewy in the middle.  My bunch loved them and now that I have the recipe again, I'm certain my grandchildren will also. :)

1 1/3 cups flour

1/2 cup large rolled oats

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup light brown sugar

1/2 cup sugar

1 egg

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 1/4 cups chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350. Lightly spray one cookie sheet with spray oil or line with parchment paper.

In a medium sized bowl whisk together flour, rolled oats, salt, and baking soda.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and combine thoroughly.

Add the flour mixture to the sweetened butter. Mix only enough to incorporate flour. Do not over mix. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Chill the dough thoroughly. Form cookies by dropping a rounded teaspoon of dough on the prepared cookie sheet two inches apart. Bake until light brown around the edges, about 12-15 minutes, depending on cookie size.
