Oatmeal Chewies

                              Chewy, Chocolate Chippy, & Yummy!

Every now and then my mind goes back to my Mom's spacious kitchen and I can picture myself sitting at the kitchen island with a glass of cold milk and some of her fresh, delicious cookies. These were no exception! They quickly became one of my favorites and so yesterday when I was preparing to serve a snack to some friends here in the evening I thought of these. I have not had them for a really long time, but I can assure you that I've had my share for this day! They were a part of my breakfast and a part of my lunch. I'll have to see if I can make it past supper and snack time without giving in to temptation.

Ingredient List:
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
3 cups quick oats
1¾-2 cups all purpose flour (Gold Medal)
1½-2 cups chocolate chips or raisins
Powdered Sugar

Size 30 cookie scoop.

Preheat oven to 350°.

Combine the first 4 ingredients in a mixer bowl and beat till fluffy.

Add the next three ingredients and mix. Scraping down sides as needed for even mixing.

Mix in oatmeal.

Then add flour; mix.

Last but not least add chocolate chips or raisins.

 I usually add the chocolate chips because more of the children like those than the raisins but the raisins would be yummy in there too.

Scoop them with a size 30 cookie scoop and roll generously in the powdered sugar.

Place them on an ungreased cookie sheet and flatten slightly with your fingers.

Bake @ 350° for 12-15 minutes. Don't overbake them if you want chewy cookies. Pour a glass of milk and wait for a warm, yummy cookie!
