Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ok, I have to say, these are the best chocolate chip cookies I've ever made! They are so chewy, yet the edges are still crisp. I replaced ground oatmeal for 1 cup of the flour and a larger ratio of brown sugar to granulated sugar also keeps the calories a bit lower. You definitely have to make these for your next party or family gathering.



Chocolate Chip Cookies
Makes 4 dozen

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup oatmeal, finely ground
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350F. Cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Combine the flour, ground oatmeal, baking soda and salt. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.

Bake the cookies, turning halfway through baking, until edges are nicely browned, about 12 minutes. Place the baking sheets on wire racks to cool.

(Each cookie is 2 pts.)
