NaBloPoMo Day 30: the home stretch… with cookies

It’s the end of November! Thank goodness! Not to wish my time away but posting every day was kind of getting to me. Was it obvious?

You don’t have to answer that.

By way of apology for having little to say for so many days in a row, here is my awesome chocolate chip cookie recipe. Enjoy!

Commisary Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 cup sweet butter
2 eggs
2 Tbsp milk
2 tsp vanilla
2 cup flower
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
2 1/2 cup rolled oats
18 oz semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (I never put these in)

Beat sugars and butter until smooth and fluffy; add eggs, milk and vanilla. Combine flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder, gradually beat into butter. By hand, stir in oats, chips and chopped nuts. Batter may be dropped onto baking sheet, but, for fatter cookies, chill the dough and roll into balls the size of table tennis balls. Place on ungreased baking sheets and bake at 350 about 12 minutes.

(I tend to chill the dough but still make smaller cookies. I like the smaller size but they’re chewier if you chill the dough.)

Makes about 4 dozen
