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
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.
Yields about forty-five 3" cookies.
