I LOVE oatmeal chocolate chip cookie dough!!! But…since eating raw eggs is really not a good idea, I baked up these cookies. I tried to refrained from eating too much of the uncooked dough. There is just something about raw oatmeal chocolate chip cookie dough that I find absolutely irresistible. Here is my go to recipe for oatmeal chocolate chip cookies:
Yields approximately 6 dozen cookies
2 sticks butter, softened
1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp clove (a little goes a long way, so don’t over season with this spice)
3 cups old-fashion or quick cooking oats (uncooked)
2 cups semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips
Beat together butter, sugar and vanilla until smooth and creamy.
Beat in eggs until light and fluffy.
Add flour, baking power, cinnamon, clove, and salt and mix until blended.
Stir in oats and chocolate chips
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Scoop dough into balls with 2 tsp scoop and place on cookie sheet 2 inches apart. I highly recommend using parchment paper, foil or a silicone baking sheet for the best results!
Bake 9-11 minutes until golden brown.
Enjoy and try not to eat them all at once!
