Chocolate chip Oatmeal Cookies Christian Light Home Ec

 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)
  This recipe makes approximately 4 dozen.

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.
