my favorite cookie

for me, the oatmeal chocolate chip cookie will always reign supreme in the world of cookies. i can’t even remember where the original recipe even came from (it’s a pretty basic cookie recipe) but i’ve tweaked it over the years and now it makes the most perfectly chewy cookies. you’ll get about 3 dozen and i guarantee you won’t want to share.


1.5 C packed brown sugar
1 C unsalted butter, softened
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 egg
2 C instant oats
1.5 C unbleached all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 C semi-sweet chocolate chips (for extra chocolatey-ness!)

preheat oven to 350
cream together butter and sugar until blended, add vanilla and egg and continue mixing
add in oats, flour, baking soda and salt and mix until completely incorporated
finally, stir in chocolate chips with a big spoon/spatula
drop big spoonfuls of the dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet
bake for EXACTLY 11 minutes (trust me!)
let cool for a few minutes on cookie sheet and then move to a rack
