Cookies and Brownies, Debbie Allen

Vanishing Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 c. butter, softened
1 c. firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla
1-1/2 c. flour
1 t. baking soda
1 t. ground cinnamon
1/2 t. salt
3 c. rolled oats, regular or quick
1 c. chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350*F.

Beat butter and sugars until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well.

Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; add to butter mixture, mixing well. Stir in oats and chocolate chips; mix well.

Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to wire rack. Cool completely and store in airtight container. Makes about 4 dozen cookies.

(Actually, this recipe is from the Quaker Oats box and is supposed to use raisins instead of chocolate chips.)
