My 23 year old son, MJ, is heading off to Atlanta today. Since the end of July, he and all of his stuff have been staying at our house. I'm talking everything, not just his clothes - furniture, lots of furniture! It's been really great having HIM home, and I'm not ready to wave goodbye yet again, but I'll be so, so glad to see the extra furniture depart.
Earlier in the week, I asked if he had any special requests for me to cook. Without even taking a minute to think, he said, "Oh yeah, oatmeal chocolate chip cookies!" I was thinking more along the lines of favorite meals before he left, but cookies works for me.
Here's my recipe for Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. I have no idea where this recipe came from. It's written on a smudged 3x5 index card that I've had forever.
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups plain (all purpose) flour
2 cups quick oatmeal
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
8 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
4 oz milk chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Cream butter and sugars in large mixing bowl.
Mix in other ingredients.
Make small balls, or drop by teaspoonful.
Bake at 375°F for 6 to 8 minutes.
Cool slightly (2 minutes) before removing from pan.
Go make some cookies! I'm off to Atlanta to help my big guy settle in. Hope the storm stays away so we can fly home.
