oatmeal chocolate chip cookies

No school for Everett yesterday so we had a pajama day. Perfect day to be home with all the clouds and wind. Also the ideal day to make cookies together. I found this recipe on my favorite food and more blog called the parsley thief. Kate makes the most delicious looking food...her photos are top notch and I love the way she gives you step by step instructions.

Thanks for the inspiration Kate...the cookies are YUMMY!

Here is the recipe:

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Adapted from Bon App├ętit
Makes 7 dozen 2 inch cookies

2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups rolled oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons (packed) dark brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Whisk the flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder & salt in a bowl.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter with both sugars until light & fluffy.
Add the eggs & vanilla & beat to combine.
Add the dry ingredients & beat until just incorporated.
Remove the mixer bowl from the stand, and fold in the chocolate chips.
Scoop the dough out by the tablespoonful & place 2 inches apart on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through the cooking time.
Let the cookies cool on a wire rack.

Just wanted to pop in and say hi and congratulations on your new baby girl! Charisse has kept me posted on things and it all sounds wonderful!

I'm also enjoying your blog...where do you find all these different blogs to follow? I just made an "upside down pineapple cake" from The Parsley Thief, which I found on your blog.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and much happiness to you and your family,
