Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
Ingredients
2¼ c. all-purpose flour
1 c. (2 sticks) butter or margarine, room temperature
1 c. sugar
1 c. light brown sugar
2 eggs
½ tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. quick rolled oats
2 c. chocolate chips
DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugars until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time, then vanilla.

3. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Whisk together until combined. With mixing speed on low, slowly add into the creamed mixture until just blended. 
4. Remove bowl from stand mixer and fold in the oats and chocolate chips. Using a standard cookie scoop, drop onto ungreased baking sheets.
5. Place in oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the tops begin to turn light gold (this will depend on how you like your cookies, if you like them gooey, bake for 10 minutes, if you like them on the crunchy side, bake for 12 minutes). Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 3-5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
