My husband had a rough week at work last week and the kids had survived their first week at school so Friday afternoon seemed like a great time to bake some cookies to kick off our weekend. A friend of mine had told me about this recipe which take the traditional Nestle recipe and tweaks it a little. The results were scrumptious.
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
3 cups chocolate chips
1/2 cup oatmeal
Preheat oven to 375° F.
Combine flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and oatmeal. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.
BAKE for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
What did the family think? They have chocolate in them..no complaining here.
Did I change anything? The original recipe has less chocolate chips, more brown and white sugar and no oatmeal. The changes I made are reflected in the recipe above.
