Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love to get my kids involved and help me in the kitchen.  They love to learn, and feel so excited when they get to eat and watch other people enjoy something they worked hard to do.  These are super yummy, and a bit guilt free 😉  My kids love these, and, well actually, so does my husband.  And if you are thinking of a last minute Halloween treat, you can easily decorate these up.  Now, don’t mind my horrible decorating skills, I ran out of piping bags and tried to do it with a ziploc bag.  Well, it’s definitely not the same.

Here’s what you need:

1 1/2 Cup Brown sugar

1 package or 2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chip cookies

1 cup butter or margarine

1 tsp baking soda

2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp salt

2 eggs

1 1/3 cup All-Purpose Flour

3 cups quick-cooking oats (old fashioned works well too)

 

Start by pre-heating your oven to 350 F.  Next, in a medium sauce pan or pot turn melt your butter or margarine and chocolate chips on low, stirring slowly.

In a large bowl, put the brown sugar in it, and once the butter and chocolate is done melting, mix it in together.  Stir until the sugar is coated.  Next add in everything except the flour and oats.  Stir until its mixed nicely.  Slowly add the flour, mix.  Last, mix in the oats.  Oatmeal Chocolate Chip CookiesOatmeal Chocolate Chip CookiesRoll the oatmeal cookies in Tablespoon sizes, making sure to press down in the middle so they bake more evenly.  Make sure to also give room in between each cookie as they will spread.

Bake in the middle rack for 9-12 minutes.  These aren’t as obvious when they’re done, so keeping an eye on time is a factor.  Once they’re done, let cool on the tray for 2 minutes, then transfer to a cookie cooling tray.
