It’s amazing how good these butter cookies are because they require so few ingredients – chances are you will have every thing you need on hand.
When I first looked at this recipe I thought it should have had baking powder in the ingredients, but it did not. The cookies were prepared as written without baking powder. They were a little flat but they had good texture and are delicious – actually I could not stop eating them.

This is a really simple recipe, give it a try, and enjoy.

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

The cold weather lingers on here in Upper Michigan so I thought it was a good time to warm the kitchen up a little bit with some baking. The sweets that were left over from the Holidays, that were in the freezer, are gone; so I took this opportunity to replenish the supply.

These Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies are delicious, and the local market had dark chocolate chips on sale which tempted me a little more. This is a very simple recipe; so simple, I would give it a cannot fail status. You could easily turn this into a Raisin Oatmeal cookie by substituting the raisins for the chocolate chips; a lot healthier I’m sure, or you could use a combination of both. There is very little prep or cooking time involved so you can have cookies on the table in less than a half an hour.
