Cindy’s Famous Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

May 26, 2011

Wanna know a secret?


It’s a secret recipe, passed down for generations.

(Well, one generation.)

It’s my Mom’s famous Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies.

(They really are famous — ask anyone who knows her.)

And now, because I like you, I’m sharing this wonderful, change-your-life recipe with you.

(These cookies truly do make the world a better place.)


Cindy’s Famous Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cream together:

1 cup real butter (salted) (2 sticks)
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup light brown sugar


2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla

Combine together:

2 cups flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of baking soda
And add slowly to the creamed mixture as you are mixing it.

Add to mixture:   

2 1/2 cups oatmeal (Not the 1 minute quick cook)

Add 12 oz of semi-sweet chocolate chips.

Place by large spoonfuls on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 9 or 10 minutes.  (And make sure to lick the spoon!)

Every oven is different and the key is don’t over bake.  Take them out of the oven just when they become lightly browned.  As they cool, they will harden.

Enjoy one (or four) with a cold glass of milk. And be prepared to share.

Maybe they’ll be in your family for generations, too.
