Oatmeal Chip Cookies

I made these while we were in South Padre, and they are just absolutely delicious. I'm really not a fan of oatmeal raisin cookies, but replace the raisins with CHOCOLATE, and oh, em, gee. Delicious.

Recipe adapted from here.

1 cup butter, melted
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups old-fashioned oats
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. Cream together the butter and sugars in a large bowl. Beat in the eggs and vanilla.
2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add to the sugar mixture.
3. Fold in the oats and chocolate chips.
4. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto a lightly greased cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart.
5. Bake at 350 for 11-12 minutes. Cool on wire racks.
6. Eat (for breakfast if you want, because you know they have oats, which means it's basically like oatmeal...hehe)!
