Ariko’s Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
Can not thank my good friend Ariko enough for this amazing cookie recipe! We met at San Jose State while both in Grad School way back in 1993 and I have been making these ever since. For over 20 years I have shared this recipe with only a few special people. Now in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I share it with all of you 🙂 (And don’t worry Leavey/McMorran/Hart Family… I will still bake them to bring tomorrow along with 15 lbs of mashed potatoes. Can’t wait to see everyone!!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
1 egg ¾ cup granulated sugar
2 sticks softened butter ¾ cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking soda … and blend.
2 cups 1-minute quick quaker oats … and blend.
And finally add-
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup milk chocolate chips.
Bake at 350 degrees for 8-11 minutes (should look soft and “not quite done”, my oven takes 11 min). Then let cool for 12 for minutes on cookie sheets. This gives you the perfect “still soft” cookie – yum!
**I often change it up too… for Christmas I add white chocolate chips and Craisons or for the oatmeal raison lovers just add raisons and a little cinnamon. These will always get rave reviews!
