Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies - Carole


Ingredients


This is my version of my mom's recipe, as I made these cookies often for the kids

  • 1 cup margarine, room temperature

  • 2 cup brown sugar

  • 2 large eggs, room temperature

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 2 cups all purpose flour

  • 1 1/2 cups oatmeal

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

  • 1 cup chocolate chips or chunks


Directions





  1. Cream together sugar, eggs and shortening

  2. Mix together flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder and baking soda in a separate bowl

  3. Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well.

  4. Add the chocolate chips and stir until mixed together

  5. Spoon onto baking sheet

  6. Bake at 350 for 7 to 10 minutes

  7. Let sit for 2 minutes

  8. Move to cooling rack

  9. When cooled move to storage container



Baking time is 7 to 10 minutes as people like different consistency. My mom liked very crunchy cookies but the rest of us like them chewy, so she would cook a sheet longer just for her.❤️
