Chef Up to the Plate fans, tomorrow is my daughter’s graduation from Graduate School! She has requested the following cookies to help celebrate the occasion. Everyone loves chocolate chip cookies and there are many good recipes out there. However, I have never had any CCC that I like better than these.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

4 T unsalted butter, softened

1/2 cup light or dark brown sugar

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 egg or 1/4 cup egg substitute

3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract or about 1/2 that if using double-strength

1 1/8 cups all purpose flour

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 cup rolled oats (uncooked)

1 cup semi or bittersweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray 2 cookie sheets with non-stick cooking spray or line with parchment paper.

Cream the butter with the sugars till smooth, add the vanilla and the egg till mixed in.

By hand, add the flour, salt, baking soda, oatmeal and chips till well mixed.

Drop by teaspoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets about 1 ” apart. Bake 8-10 minutes till lightly browned, a little longer if you like them well done.
