The last day of school is here. While that means many things, in this house it also means last day of school cookies will be baking. Any kid that stops by my house on the last day of school gets a fresh-baked cookie to celebrate the start of summer. I bake a different type each year, this morning I’ll be whipping together a batch of these:
Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies
1 cup (2 sticks) butter at room temp
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups oats (quick or old fashioned)
1 package of chocolate chunks
1. Preheat oven to 375.
2. Cream the butter and sugars. Add the eggs and vanilla.
3. Mix the dry ingredients together and then add slowly to the wet ingredients. Stir in the chocolate chunks.
4. Drop by heaping tablespoons on baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
