mmmmm, mondays: the best chocolate chips cookies ever


summertime means hours and hours of uninterrupted time with my kids. while i love spending time with them, i'm not going to pretend that they days aren't long and rough at times. i pretty much survive summer with baked goods...usually ones that involve chocolate. this week was no exception. i did share a few of these with my kids but the majority of them were my own to enjoy. they are the best chocolate chip cookies i've ever had. there is a dash of cinnamon in these that make these irresistable! enjoy!

chocolate chip cookies (the best ones ever)

1 cup butter

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 1/2 cup flour

2 cups oats

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 (12 oz.) package chocolate chips

cream butter and sugars until smooth. add eggs and vanilla and mix well until creamy. beat one minute. add all the dry ingredients and the chocolate chips and mix well. drop by spoonful onto an ungreased baking sheet. bake at 350 degrees for 7-9 minutes. enjoy! (yields about 4 dozen cookies)
