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.

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

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

- 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.
