Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Gather the ingredients - * Butter * Brown sugar * Egg * Vanilla extract * Old-fashioned oats * Flour * Baking soda * Chocolate chips

In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and brown sugar together until light and fluffy - about 1 minute.

– Add in eggs and vanilla extract and mix until combined.  Make sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl as necessary. – Next, add in the oats, flour, and baking soda.  Mix on low speed, just until combined.

Add in the chocolate chips and fold them in gently.  I don't recommend  using the mixer attachment for this part as it can break up chocolate  too much.

Scoop cookie dough into balls that are about 2 tablespoons worth of  cookie dough before placing on the lined sheet pan, leaving about 2" of  space on all sides so that the cookies can expand.  Repeat with  remaining dough.

Place sheet pan in the oven to cook for about 12-14 minutes.  The edges  of the cookies should be slightly golden.  Remove from oven and let the  cookies sit on the sheet pan for about 5-10 minutes before transferring  them to a cooling rack.

Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three days.
