Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies

I don't know about you, but I am SO looking forward to the weekend. I hear we may even get temps above freezing for two consecutive days! Heat wave!

In our home, we celebrate Fridays with homemade cookies. And as promised yesterday, here is a yummy Cookie Friday recipe for you to try!

They have oatmeal, so you can even call them healthy.  ;)



CHOCOLATE CHUNK OATMEAL COOKIES

2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup light brown sugar*
1/2 cup granulated sugar*
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
2 cups unbleached flour
1 cup old-fashioned oats (quick-cooking would work too)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
pinch salt
2 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (we used an assortment of chunks, chips, and mini-chips)

*I always use slightly less sugar than what any given recipe calls for and they turn out great!

Preheat oven to 325F degrees.
Beat butter and sugars, then beat in egg, egg yolk, and vanilla. Add remaining dry ingredients except the chocolate chips/chunks; mix thoroughly. Gently stir in chunks and chips.

Using a cookie scoop or spoon, drop dough onto lightly greased or parchment-lined pan. You should get about 10-12 cookies per standard cookie sheet/pan. Bake about 12-15 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Let cool 1-2 minutes and place on rack to finish cooling.

Most of the oatmeal cookies I've made call for a tablespoon or two of milk, but this recipe uses an egg yolk and more vanilla- the texture is a little different this way, and we really enjoyed them.
 

Yields about forty-five 3" cookies.

Just perfect for dunking!  =)


ps- does anyone know how to make your blog recipes that cute printable version? If it's super technical, then thanks anyway, but don't bother. ha ha ha
