Hello! As an elective this year, I'm doing Christian Light Education's Home Ec course. I'm still in the beginning, but I'm enjoying it a lot.
This week, I got to make chocolate chip oatmeal cookies, and I'm going to share the recipe here.
To make them, you'll need:
- 2 c Brown sugar
- 1c margarine(I used butter)
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 c flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 3 c quick oats
- 12 oz (2 c) chocolate chips
- sifted powered sugar in a small mixing bowl
- 1/2 chopped walnuts (optional)
To make: Cream brown sugar and butter. Add eggs and continue beating until mixture is well mixed. Add vanilla.
Put flour, salt, powder, and soda, into a sifter. Sift about 1/3 of flour mixture into creamed mixture and beat until well blended. Add another 1/3 of mixture, beat well; then add final third and beat until mixture is blended.
Clean sides of bowl often.
Fold in oatmeal, chocolate chips, and walnuts by hand. Roll in balls the size of a large walnut. Roll in powdered sugar and place on greased cookie sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. A cracked or wrinkled appearance is normal.
After baking, allow cookies to cool one or two minutes on baking sheets before removing to a rack.
