Country Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I promised you the recipe ... & here is it.
These cookies were delicious!

In yesterday's blog, I shared my beautiful Amish-themed basket.
It was complete with this cookie mix in a jar
{well, a beautiful decanter that I'm ganna use to serve OJ}.


In a medium mixing bowl, I creamed together:
3/4 c. softened butter
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla



Next, I added the contents of the jar & stirred it all together by hand.


This is one of my favorite kitchen gadgets ... my cookie scooper!
It's perfect for keeping all your cookies all the same size & makes quick work of getting the cookies on the sheet.



And the final product:


Nothin' better than warm cookies, right out of the oven.
These got a big thumbs up!

Here's the complete recipe.



  • 3/4 cup white sugar



  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar



  • 1 cup rolled oats



  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour



  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder



  • 1/2 teaspoon salt



  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips



  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)




  • Preheat oven to 350. In a medium bowl, cream together 3/4 cup of softened butter, with 2 eggs & 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Add remaining ingredients & mix by hand until combined. Drop dough by heaping spoonfuls {or cookie scooper-fuls} onto an unprepared cookie sheet. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven.
