Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 TBS sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 11/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/4 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 2 cups Ghiridelli Chocolate Chips {I used chocolate chunks}
  • 3/4 cup walnuts, (toasted and COOLED) {I ommitted these}
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. With a mixer, beat butter and sugars in a bowl until light and fluffy. Add eggs and beat until just blended. Add in vanilla, baking soda, and salt. Beat well.
  3. With a spoon, gently mix in flour until just blended. Gently stir in oats, chocolate chips and walnuts. Do not over mix.
  4. Place rounded spoonfulls of dough on sheets about 2 inches apart.
  5. Bake for about 10-13 minutes or until the edges start turning golden. For a crispier cookie, cook until completely golden, 15-16 minutes. Watch carefully, as 30 seconds can make the difference between "chewy" and "rock hard".
  6. Cool cookies on sheets for 1 minute, then transfer to a rack to cool completely
