Cara’s Ultimate Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
Makes 3 dozen

As you’ll see, the cookies take two distinct approaches (which is why we felt comfortable having Cara make both…it’s more about the recipes competing, see, than the QLC’s): Phoebe’s method takes a regular chocolate chip cookie recipe and adds oatmeal, while Cara’s substitutes chocolate chips for raisins in a regular oatmeal cookie recipe. Since they share the ingredients that ultimately lead to deliciousness—butter, brown sugar, and chocolate—there’s less a competition between the bakers than a friendship-augmenting rivalry. In other words, the story has a happy ending. Read the original post here.

Ingredients
2/3 cup white sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
3 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375°F. Mix butter with sugars until incorporated and creamy. Ad d the eggs and mix to combine. Stir in the vanilla extract

Separately, combine the baking soda, baking powder, salt, flour, oats, and chocolate chips. Add to the butter mixture and mix only until just combined.

Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased baking sheet (about 2 inches apart). Bake 8-10 minutes until the edges are crisp and the centers are still slightly soft.

    Loved how the Oatmeal, Chocolate Chip recipe came out. I also added lots of chopped Walnuts. The batter was quite difficult to mix, after that, but well worth it.  This turned out to be my favorite Oatmeal cookie by far.
    I need to make a softer Oatmeal cookie for a friend.  Does anyone have any suggestions?  Thank-You, if anyone does.
