Servings: 3 dozen cookies
Author: Barbara Schieving


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 ½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a small bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix the butter and brown sugar on medium speed until smooth and creamy. Reduce the mixer speed to low and beat in the eggs one at a time mix until well blended. Mix in the vanilla.
  • Add the dry ingredients and mix just until blended. Stir in the oats and chocolate chips. Cover and refrigerate dough for 30 minutes.
  • Using two spoons or a small cookie scoop, drop by rounded spoonfuls on to cookie sheets. Bake 12 to 14 minutes, until edges are set but the center is still soft.
  • Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • If your dough isn't chilled, your baked time will be reduced to 10 to 12 minutes.
