Saturday Baking

My oldest daughters have been begging for me to find a cookie recipe given to me by my good friend, Jamie. Several years ago Jamie had my oldest two daughters over for a playdate.  Good mom that she is, she had her daughter and my two help her make cookies.  The girls fell in love with these tasty morsels and were thrilled when she emailed me the recipe.  We made them and enjoyed them, and then somehow the recipe went missing.
Last weekend my oldest daughter and I cleaned out two of our cupboards in an effort to get rid of too much "stuff."  Lo and behold, the cookie recipe was pushed to the back of the top shelf.  Immediately I was hearing requests for these cookies, and then had to referee a fight over which girl would get to make them. 
We have already consumed the first batch, so tonight Middle Sister made another batch to enjoy.

Oatmeal Chip Cookies

Sift together:
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
2 c. flour

Cream well:
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter, room temperature

Blend into creamed mixture: 2 unbeaten eggs
After eggs are blended, beat well
Add dry ingredients and mix well

Stir in 2 cups of oatmeal and 1 c. of choc. chips

Shape into dough balls

Bake at 375 degrees for 9-12 minutes. Do not overbake- take out sooner and let fall on cookie sheet so they are softer. Enjoy!
