When I was a little girl, my friend Laurie and I were completely inseparable.
We were always at her house or my house.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
These are kind of my “childhood cookies”,
my go-to cookies, and
my when I want something chocolatey kind of cookies.
(and in my mind, they might be kind of good for me because they have oatmeal in them)
Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
3/4 cup butter, softened to room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
2 extra-large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup bittersweet chocolate morsels
1 cup milk chocolate morsels
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Beat the first butter and sugars at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add the eggs and the vanilla. Beat until well blended.
In another bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add this mixture to the butter-sugar mixture, beating well. Stir in the oats and the chocolate morsels.
Using a small cookie scoop or spoon, drop onto a prepared baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. Let cool on the baking sheet for 1-2 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack.
