Mom's Famous Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies




Right now I am sitting at our mud room desk, watching my mother mow the lawn with our push mower, because why use gas when you can push it yourself, right?  Even after breaking her ankle a couple weeks ago, my mom won't give up her motherly duties.  She wrapped her cast in a plastic bag to keep her boot clean as she does the "dirty work" out in the yard.  How does one women learn to accomplish so much in one day?  Hopefully she will spill all of her secrets to me when I become a mom. I have a feeling when that day comes, she will tell me that these cookies make each member of our family a whole lot happier.



Our dog Loey can smell these things from a mile away! It's hilarious! She comes running and always gets a taste because, how can you stand that cute face?

Every visitor that comes into our house either asks for a cookie or receives a handful of them, or both. I have friends who walk directly to the refrigerator when they visit.  Everyone knows that they will find a bag of some of the yummiest cookies on that refrigerator shelf.  We make these cookies every week at least once twice. Here's how to make our family favorite!



Mom's Famous Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
INGREDIENTS
1 1/2 cups (3 cubes) butter, softened
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons of vanilla
3 eggs
3 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoon soda
1 1/2 teaspoon powder
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup wheat germ (optional, makes them less greasy and adds a yummy flavor)
3 cups quick oats
Semisweet and milk chocolate chips
Chopped pecans (optional)

DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 375° F.  Cream together butter, sugar, and brown sugar.  Stir in vanilla, eggs and wheat germ. Sift together flour, soda, powder, and salt.  Add flour mixture and oatmeal. Stir in chocolate chips by hand. Bake on a non-stick cookie sheet for about 9 minutes until golden. Do not over bake. We usually take them out while still soft and let them finish cooking on the baking sheets, then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
