How to make Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies:
- Preheat your oven.
- Prepare a cooking sheet with non stick cooking spray or parchment paper and set aside.
- Cream together melted butter with sugar and brown sugar.
- Beat in vanilla, cinnamon, egg, and egg yolk until smooth and creamy.
- Shift together flour, salt, and baking soda.
- Slowly mix this with your wet ingredients.
- Fold in oats and chocolate chips.
- Roll out balls of dough and place them on your prepared baking sheet.
- Bake then allow to cools on the baking sheet before moving it to a cooling rack.
The trick to the perfect cookie is to make sure they are not over baked so make sure you check on them regularly. It took me just 10 minutes before they where done but different stoves and even your location could change that. I would say check at 10 minutes and keep checking until your cookies are done. They will be perfectly done when your center is still soft and the edges are lightly brown. I let mine sit on the baking sheet and continue to slowly cook for 3-4 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack.
