Homemade Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

It is Thanksgiving weekend in Canada but as much as I would love to be there with my family, I am stuck in California studying for my midterms.  I thought about having my own mini Thanksgiving here and then I realized how much work that would be alone.  I opted to do a little baking instead.  Although baking these cookies made me super happy ... I now have about 3 dozen cookies in my kitchen that need eating.


I've really been craving oatmeal chocolate chip cookies lately and found a great recipe online that turned out amazing.  See original source here.

Ingredients:

1 cup of butter (softened)
1 cup of light brown sugar
1/2 cup of white sugar
1 3/4 cup of flour
2 eggs
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of salt
3 cups of quick cooking oats
1 cup of chopped walnuts
1 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips

Directions:

1.  Preheat oven to 325 F

2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture until just blended. Mix in the quick oats, walnuts, and chocolate chips. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto un-greased baking sheets.

3. Bake for 12 minutes in the preheated oven.  Allow cookies to cool for 5 minutes on baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.


(Also, I should be studying for my Evidence midterm tomorrow ... but there's nothing wrong with a little foodie break. Right?!)
