It’s Monday and in eager anticipation of seeing The Wizard of Oz at the Pantages tomorrow, I took time to whip up some yumminess in the kitchen.
A favorite with my family – Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies.


  • 14 Tablespoons butter softened
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3 Cups Quaker Oats (quick or old-fashioned, uncooked)
  • 1 bag of real semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • In a mixer, beat butter and sugars on medium speed until creamy.
  • Add eggs and vanilla; beat well.
  • Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg; mix well. 
  • Add oats and chocolate chips; mix well. 
  • Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  • Bake 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool for a couple minutes on cookie sheets; remove to wire rack. Cool completely.
Trust me, you’ll be sneaking a bite between trays of cookies.  One bite of gooeyness and you’ll be smiling from ear-to-ear.
