½ c butter, softened
½ c firmly packed brown sugar
¾ c granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla
¾ c all-purpose flour
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
11/2 c oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
1 c semisweet chocolate chips (I prefer Ghiradelli and I cut it to ¾ c)
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
In large bowl, beat butter and sugars with electric mixer until creamy. Add vanilla and egg; beat well. Add combined flour, baking soda and salt; mix well. Stir in oats and chocolate chips; mix well.
Press dough into bottom of any 10-inch pan (oven proof non-stick skillet, tart pan, etc.)
Bake 20 minutes or until top is lightly browned. (Do NOT over bake as cookie will continue to bake after it is
removed from oven).
Cool about 10 minutes. Cut into wedges. Serve plain or with ice cream or frozen yogurt.
