choc-oat-chip cookies

okay, so this recipe is stolen. it's on the back of nearly every package of toll house chocolate chips. it's a screamin' favorite around here though. i have made a few changes to the recipe...

1 3/4 cups flour (i like whole wheat flour)
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 cup of butter or marg. (i know this is gross, but shortening works the best...)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 tbsp. milk (i learned the hard way not to leave this out!)
2 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 cups of oats (either old fashioned or quick cooking... i like old fashioned and sometimes i round up to 3 cups)
2 cups chocolate chips
1 cup of coarsely chopped nuts (optional- i never do this because of the allergies in my house)

preheat oven to 375

combine flour, soda, and salt in a small bowl. beat both sugars and butter in a large mixer until creamy (3-5 minutes). beat in eggs, milk, and vanilla. gradually beat in flour mixture. stir in oats, chocolate chips, and nuts; mix well.

drop (massive) tablespoonfuls onto a cookie sheet and bake for 9-10 minutes for chewy cookies or for 12-13 minutes for crispy cookies. cool on cookie sheets for 1 minute and then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

*they taste the best warm.

So now I have a sweet tooth craving... hmmm... maybe I'll make these with my mom this weekend. :-D
