I like these cookies because the oatmeal gives them a little more substance than your typical chocolate chip cookie.
1/2 lb. (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 c. firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 c. granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 c. oats
1 package (12 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla. Add combined flour, baking soda, and salt. Add oats and chocolate chips. Drop by rounded tablespoonsful on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 7-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool for 1 minute on baking sheets before removing to wire cooling rack. Store tightly covered.
