Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
These cookies, our 2015 Recipe of the Year, are soft and chewy, packed with chips, and go beyond the standard chocolate chip cookie with the addition of nutty tasting oats. They're a specialty of our Bake Truck, which travels the country serving these as part of our Bake for Good fundraising program. Our thanks to the Cookies for Kids' Cancer non-profit, the originator of this recipe.
Prep Time 25 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes
- 1cupunsalted butter16 tablespoons, at room temperature
- 1cuplight brown sugarpacked
- 1/2cupgranulated sugar
- 1large eggat room temperature
- 1large egg yolkat room temperature
- 1tablespoonvanilla extract
- 2cupsKing Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour or Measure for Measure Gluten-Free Flour
- 1cupquick-cooking or old-fashioned oats
- 1teaspoonbaking powder
- 1teaspoonbaking soda
- 1teaspoonkosher salt or 3/4 teaspoon regular table salt
- 3cupssemisweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line several cookie sheets with parchment paper, or lightly grease with non-stick vegetable oil spray.
Beat together the butter and sugars until smooth.
Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla one at a time, beating well after each.
Whisk together the flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, and salt, and add to the butter mixture in the bowl.
Mix until everything is thoroughly incorporated. Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl, and mix briefly.
Stir in the chocolate chips.
Decide what size cookies you want to make. A muffin scoop (1/4 cup) will make 20 large, palm-sized cookies. A tablespoon cookie scoop (4 teaspoons) will make 50 medium (2 3/4" to 3") cookies; and a teaspoon cookie scoop (2 teaspoons) will make 100 small (2 1/2") cookies.
Scoop the dough onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving about 1 1/2" to 2" between cookies.
Bake the cookies for 12 to 17 minutes, until they're a light golden brown, with slightly darker edges. Their middles may still look a tiny bit shiny; that's OK, they'll continue to bake as they cool on the pan.
Remove the cookies from the oven, and as soon as they're set enough to handle, transfer them to racks to cool.
