Lizzy's Famous Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Servings 4 dozen cookies


  • 1 C. unsalted butter
  • 1 C. brown sugar not packed
  • 1 C. sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • 2 ¼ C. flour
  • 2 C. old fashioned oats
  • 1 bag Guittard Milk Chocolate Chips


  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line cookies sheets with parchment paper.
  2. 2. Cream butter and sugars together for about 5 minutes, it should turn a lighter color and appear "fluffy." Add vanilla and eggs.
  3. 3. In a separate bowl sift salt, baking soda, baking powder, and flour together.
  4. 4. Add dry ingredients slowly to wet while mixing. Do not over mix.
  5. 5. Add oats. Add chocolate chips.
  6. 6. Place dough balls that are about the size of a golf ball on cookie sheets, I always line mine with parchment paper. (To make my cookies thicker, I will scoop out dough balls onto a plate and then pop them in the freezer for 10 minutes, and then bake! This keeps them taller while they bake!)
  7. 7. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Time will vary depending on ovens, but you want to take them out just before the tops start to golden. (They will look like they aren't done when you take them out, but they will keep cooking when they're out of the oven!)
  8. 8. Let cool on a sheet a for 3 minutes. Once they set, taking about 15 minutes, they will be ready to eat.
