My mom makes the best chocolate chip cookies in the whole wide world. I have sampled crispy ones, chewy ones, small ones, fat ones, ones with white chips, ones with nuts and every other kind, and I have come to the conclusion that my mom still makes the best chocolate chip cookies. I have tried to improve on these perfect morsels of goodness to no avail! They are simply the best. I figured the only way to improve them - Is to serve them with the dignity they deserve.
1 1/2 cups flour 2 cups uncooked oatmeal (quick oats) 1 tsp. baking soda 1 tsp. salt 1 (3.4 oz) package instant vanilla pudding Mix together and set aside
Blend: 1 cup (2 sticks) margarine or butter (I always use butter) 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed 3/4 cup granulated sugar 1 tsp. vanilla Beat in 2 room temperature eggs.
Add flour mixture and mix well. Stir in 12 oz bag semi-sweet chocolate chips. I always add a little more. Drop by spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 10 minutes. Cool on sheet for 5 minutes then move to cooling rack.
Enjoy! To use as decoration on a glass, cut slit in cookies right when they come out of the oven - then cool for 20 minutes.
