Chunky Oatmeal Cookies

6 Comments

Wow!  It’s March already!  It looks like it may come in like a lion here in Virginia.  We are expecting SNOW tomorrow.

I found this recipe online somewhere and the cookies are delicious!  The recipe called for semisweet mega morsels and I don’t even know if they still make them but I couldn’t find them anywhere so I used semisweet chunks and it worked great.  I also left out the pecans but you could use any kind of nut in these.  The recipe called for a 9 minute baking time and I ended up baking them for 12 minutes.

Chunky Oatmeal Cookies

1 cup butter
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 tsps vanilla
2 cups flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3 cups uncooked oats (I use old fashioned)
1 cup semisweet chunks (use 2 cups if you like lots of chocolate in your cookies)
1 cup pecan pieces, optional

Beat butter and sugars with a mixer until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla and beat well.

Add flour, baking soda, and salt to butter mixture and mix well. Stir in oats and chunks and pecans if using.

Drop by tbspfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.

Bake at 350º for 10-12 minutes or until golden. Let the cookies cool a bit on the sheets and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Makes 4-5 dozen cookies.
