we’ve been cooped up inside the last little while. it’s winter and it’s snowing outside, and i decided way back in december that it was hibernation time. don’t get me wrong – we still go out to play in the snow on occasion, but that only lasts for 1/2 hour before we’re all frozen.
so we bake lots of cookies and drink lots of hot chocolate. there’s nothing like a warm cookie from the oven when your cheeks are still red from building a snowman.
here are my mother-in-law’s oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. we’re always calling her to get the recipe (because i always misplace it), so it’s probably just as well that i post it on here so i know where to find it!
all you need: oatmeal, chocolate chips, flour, sugar, eggs, brown sugar, vanilla, butter, salt, cinnamon (this makes it taste sooo good!), and baking soda.
oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe
- 1 cup butter

- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/4 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

- cream together the butter and sugars. add eggs and vanilla. in a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. add to the butter mixture and mix well. stir in the oats and chocolate chips by hand. spoon onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes at 375 degrees. serve warm and enjoy!

I keep trying to pin this and Pinterest tells me it’s not a valid picture. 🙁 But I’m definitely trying this recipe. I love oatmeal cookies in any way, shape or form! Thanks for such a good, basic, easy recipe! And I love those polka dot measuring cupsl Where did you get them?
I’m so sorry the pin it button doesn’t work for you!! It works for some people and not others, and we’ve been trying to get the issue resolved! Hopefully we can get it working for you soon!
I got the polka dot measuring cups at a little kitchen store, but the same ones are on amazon: polka dot measuring cups.
they are darling, aren’t they?! 🙂
