Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

My husband recently went on a HIKING trip and asked me to make these COOKIES for him and the guys. They are sooooo good I ate FOUR of them—one off of every pan FRESH from the oven!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
3/4 cup butter, room temp
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 to 1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 heaping teaspoon salt
3 cups oats
1 2/3 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Beat together the butter and sugars until blended and then beat in the eggs and vanilla. Mix together the flour, soda, cinnamon, and salt, and then beat into the butter mixture until well blended. Stir in the oats and chocolate chips. Drop large teaspoonfuls of dough onto cookie sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until lightly golden. (Cookies may look a little doughy in the middles still.) Remove from oven and let cool about 2 minutes on pan and then completely on a cooling rack. Makes a few dozen.

TIP: I can never decide what chocolate I like more, semisweet or milk, so I often use a combo of the two in these cookies. However, my favorite combo is milk chocolate chips and butterscotch chips. YUMMY!
