First alcohol, now cookies

This is another fabulous Chocolate Chip cookie recipe, with the added bonus of being a great oatmeal cookie recipe as well! Oatmeal cookies with lots of cinnamon are really my favorite, but these come in a close second to Ghirardelli's chocolate chip cookies.....
(originally from allrecipes.com)

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips ( I use more)


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture until just blended. Mix in the quick oats, walnuts, and chocolate chips. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.
  3. Bake for 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Yields about 3 1/2 dozen.

quick tip--
take any oatmeal ccc rec. and exchange creamy pb for the butter and/or the shortening...it comes out the most dippable pb ccc in the world! (my opinion)
