Old Fashioned Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
Servings: 36 cookies
The ultimate chocolate chip cookie: soft and chewy, chocolate and vanilla. Oatmeal is the secret to perfection.
- 1 cup salted butter must be room temperature
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 2 1/2 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup old fashioned oatmeal
- 1 cup chocolate chips
After lots of experimenting, I have found that the quality of a cookie comes down to one thing: THE BUTTER. Cookies turn out so much better if two things are done.
- The butter must be room temperature: not harder, not softer. If you've forgotten to set the butter out a head of time, I find the best thing to do is use a box grater and grate the stick of butter. It sounds crazy, but all those little grates of butter get to the butter to the consistency it needs to be.
- The butter needs to be whipped! Instead of just mixing the butter and sugar together until combined, leave the mixer on for another 5 minutes. This results in a light and fluffy base that makes your cookies SO much softer and more delicious.
