Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

This was a new addition to our Christmas goodies this year and it was a hit! This is the first batch of cookies that I have made that have turned out OK for about 6 months so I was very pleased with them.


Recipe: Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies



1 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups rolled oats
1 cup chocolate chips




Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Beat butter or margarine and sugars until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Add combined flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt; mix well. Stir in oats and chocolate chips, mix well. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake 10 to 12 minutes, until cookies are almost set. Do not overbake. Cool 1 minute on cookies sheets, then move to wire racks. Cool and store tightly covered.
