Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 stick butter 1/2 cup
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup oatmeal
  • 1 cup chocolate chips use a mix of white and dark chocolate chips
  • 1 to 3/4 cup craisans
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. In a large mixing bowl, combine sugars and softened butter and beat until creamy. Beat in the milk, vanilla and egg. Slowly incorporate the rest of the ingredients in the order listed. Drop tablespoons of dough onto a cookie sheet spaced about 2 inches apart. Bake between 9 and 12 minutes or until the edges have started turning a golden brown. You can turn the cookie sheet around halfway through cooking time to help with even cooking. Ovens can vary a little, so I begin checking on the cookies at 8 minutes. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for one minute prior to lifting them with a metal spatula onto a cooking rack. They need this time to set. They also freeze well.
Recipe Notes

This recipe is a great all-purpose chocolate chip oatmeal cookie base. You can vary it up in many ways - use m n m's instead of chocolate chips, substitute the craisans with raisans and add a dash of cinnamon, add nuts or coconut. Use your imagination!
