Cookies have always been one of my favorite desserts to have around the house. They are fairly easy to make (and not mess up). Easy to grab and eat...seriously I have eaten a few while typing this post... Store in the freezer to pull out when last minute guests drop by (a complete Super Mom move, home made cookies at all times :) I have been known to sneak in healthy veggies among the chocolate goodness. But these cookies, are just yum...simple and delish.
My littlest helper asked if we could make some cookies and I was happy to have her help...then my other helper decided to help himself to some of the chocolate chips.
I have found it works best to have everything measured and ready to go when I include little hands in the process. We have a great time, and I don't accidentally forget anything important :)
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Bake Time: 11-13 minutes
Yields: 3 dozen
1 cup Unsalted Butter, softened
1 1/4 cup Granulated Sugar
2 Large Eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 1/2 cup Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Salt
3 cups Quick or Old Fashioned Oats
1 cup Chocolate Chips
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and prepare your cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Cream together Butter and Sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add Eggs one at at time, then Vanilla. Mix until well incorporated.
In a medium bowl, sift Flour, Baking Soda, Cinnamon, and Salt. Slowly add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients. Mix until combined. Stir in Oats and Chocolate Chips.
Use a medium cookie scoop (1 1/2 tablespoon) to portion cookies onto prepared cookie sheet. Be sure to leave space, cookies will flatten as they bake.
Bake for 11-13 minutes. Allow cookies to rest on the cookie sheet for about 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
Store in an air tight container, or hide in the freezer (they will disappear quickly).
