Tutorial Tuesday: Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

I hope recipes count as tutorials because this one is my all time favorite cookie recipe! It's super simple to make and they are soft and chewy. Makes 2 dozen.

Ingredients:
1 egg
5 ml baking soda
5 ml baking powder
125 ml brown sugar
125 ml white sugar
125 ml mini chocolate chips
300 ml rolled oats
300 ml butter
300 ml all purpose flour

Instructions:
1. Sift baking powder, baking soda and flour in a medium bowl then mix in chocolate chips and oatmeal.
2. In a large bowl cream (mix) the butter and sugars with the egg until smooth.
3. Add the powdered mixture into the larger bowl 1/3 at a time and mix well until everything is combined.
4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
5. Take a 15 ml spoon and scoop cookie dough onto a greased pan.
6. Bake 8-10 mins or until golden brown

Tips:
- Leave 2 inches between each cookie as they spread when baking!
- If you like raisins feel free to throw a handful of those in! Make sure you soak them in a bit of water and then squeeze the excess out. It makes them plump and juicy.

Thank-you for sharing this recipe! We have an overabundance of oatmeal in this house right now and I needed some recipes to use it up.
