Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

These are my all time favorite cookies. These cookies make an appearance at my kids' lemonade/cookie stand every year. Last year I baked 3 batches of cookies and we still sold out in 45 minutes. Now you don't have to wait for the kids' lemonade stand (or pay 25 cents) to have one of these yummy cookies.

1 c. butter
1 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
3 c. quick oats
1 tsp. vanilla
1 3/4 c. chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugars together. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine and blend flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir in oatmeal and chocolate chips. Bake at 350 degrees for 13 min.

**I really think one of the things that make these cookies so good is the length of time that you bake them. I always take them out before they look completly cooked all of the way through. As soon as the edges turn golden brown I take them out of the oven. Even if the center of the cookie does not look done, take them out anyway and leave the cookies on the cookie sheet for 5 min. After 5 min the cookies should be set up enough to transfer to a cooking rack.


  1. These are my favorite chocolate chip cookies EVER! In fact they are award winning in my book. I'm glad to get the tips, so maybe mine will taste as good as Liz's.

  2. I agree, these cookies are great. Next time I need cookies, I will have to remember to make them.

  3. I was going to make some pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, but I am going to make these instead. My kids bought one at the lemonade stand once, but they wouldn't share with me. Thanks for posting it!
