Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love cookies. I just do. However, I like simple cookies and don't like when they have eight million things in them. Sunday was the perfect day for some baking. Football was on, we had Monday off of work, and the weather was dreadful. I looked through my Pinterest to find something simple and delicious to make. The Husband saw the oatmeal cookies and insisted I make them. 

The cookies were really easy and they came out great. Shape wise they were the best cookies I have ever made. I always worry about baking new things because of the altitude but these came out awesome and I took the leftovers to work on Tuesday. You can always count on Pinterest and All Recipes to get you through the insane urge to bake. 

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup of softened butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup of white sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
3 cups of oats
1 cup chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. 

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.

3. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture until just blended. Mix in the quick oats, and chocolate chips. Drop spoonfuls onto cookie sheet.

4. Bake for 11 minutes. Allow cookies to cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
