I was going to be selfish on posting this recipe! Why would I share one of the most incredible chocolate chip cookie recipes ever and give my best away?! However, I do love sharing and it does make me happy to be able to. 🙂 Be warned, these are addictive and under the "Decadently Indulgent" category. CHEWY, SOFT, THIN, BUTTERY, CHOCOLATY, AND... P-E-R-F-E-C-T. All of that equals these cookies. I love how they get thin, but stay chewy with just a little crisp on the edges. Seriously folks, PERFECTION. I add a touch of Cinnamon and I add white chocolate chunks and chocolate chips. If you are lucky, these are usually what I make for my loved ones on their birthday. These are also great for creating the ultimate ice cream sandwich cookies. So there you have it, now you have one of my ultimate chocolate chip cookie recipes. All you need is a tall glass of milk and ENJOY!
Makes 16 Big Cookies or 24 Normal-size Cookies
- 1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chunks
- Preheat oven to 350 F. You need 2 large baking sheets. I actually place foil over them and spray that with cooking spray for an easy clean up. Whatever you decide you want the baking sheets greased or use cooking spray.
- Combine butter, sugar, and brown sugar in a large bowl. Beat with spoon or a mixer (I use my best friend..."Rosemary" she is my red Kitchen Aid Mixer) on med. speed until creamy. Beat in the 1 egg and vanilla extract, Set aside.
- Sift flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon into a small bowl. Add the flour mixture, beating continuously. Now stir in the rolled oats and chocolate madness.
- Spoon either 1 tablespoonful full for smaller cookies or 2 tablespoonfuls for bigger ones (say for ice cream sandwiches), onto prepared baking sheets. Bake cookies until lightly browned about 8-10 mins. Let cookies cool before transferring to wire racks (they can fall apart if you aren't patient, trust me I know). Easy enough!
