Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I offered a gentleman a cookie today at work and he said, "Oh no, if I have one, it will be down hill for me every time you serve cookies. There should be a group called Cookie addicts Anonymous!" That made me laugh, but I totally understand his philosophy. I could attend a C.A.A. group occasionally myself. Hmmm, but what would we have with our coffee at group? That is a cookie conundrum! Here is the recipe for the cookies I baked off today.

Ingredients:

1 cup butter     
1 cup brown sugar 
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-3/4 cups flour
1
teaspoon soda
1/2
teaspoon baking powder
1/2
teaspoon salt
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup quick oats
12 ounces chocolate chips (or more in place of nuts, if you SO desire)
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (OPTIONAL as I would rather add more chocolate and skip d nuts)

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream butter and sugars together in or with a mixer.  Add eggs and vanilla and beat until fluffy. Add dry ingredients to butter mixture.  Stir in oatmeal, chips, nuts and mix well.

Form into uniform pieces with a cookie scoop, place evenly on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Press down for uniformity onto cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes, or until golden. Makes about 4 dozen, 3-inch in size cookies.
