It was a rainy Monday and Whitaker realized we were out of cookies. In a house of boys, running out of cookies is a bad thing. Whitaker is a problem solver and quickly declared, “Mommy, we can just make some cookies.” I had several other ideas on my to-do list for the afternoon. But I was quickly reminded that checking off boxes on my list could wait, I need to make cookies with Whitaker.
This chocolate chip cookie recipe is so easy and you will probably have everything you need to create them right in your kitchen. It is a great recipe to have a young chef to help you with because the measurements are easy and they love scooping the cookie dough on to the cookie sheet.
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 t vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 t baking soda
3 cup quick oats
2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Scoop into 1″ balls & place on greased cookie sheet or parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Add additional chocolate chips on top of scooped cookies. (This makes your cookies look even better after they are baked.)
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until edges start to turn a light golden brown.
Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
