Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
This cookie stays soft and chewy! My kids love them!
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
3 cups quick cooking oats
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1. In a large bowl cream together butter and both sugars. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Then stir in Vanilla.
2. In a small bowl combine flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and cloves.
3. Combine the dry ingredients into the wet.
4. Mix in oats and chocolate chips.
5. Cover and chill dough for at least an hour.
6. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place parchment paper on cookie sheet. Roll dough into 1 inch balls. I use a cookie scoop to do this…..makes my life of making cookies much easier!
7. Place each cookie ball approx. 2 inches apart.
8. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the bottoms are light brown. Allow to cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes. Then transfer them to a wire rack to completely cool.
Apparently my husband really likes these cookie cakes. He told me his mom made a version of it for him and his siblings growing up.
- ½ cup butter
- 18.25-oz. chocolate cake mix (I used a devils food cake mix.)
- 2 eggs, well-beaten
- 1 tablespoon water
- ½ cup confectioner’s sugar, placed in a shallow bowl
- In a large mixing bowl, use a pastry blender (or fork) to blend ½ cup butter and an 18.25-oz. package of chocolate cake mix, until the mixture is crumbly.
- Add 2 well-beaten eggs and 1 tablespoon water and stir until smooth. The mixture will be extremely THICK! Let mixture rest 5 minutes.
- Use a spoon to get enough of the mixture out to form a 1-inch ball (I use a cookie baller). Drop the mixture into the shallow bowl of confectioner’s sugar.
- Use your hands to roll the mixture into a ball, coating it with confectioner’s sugar.
- Place the coated chocolate ball in a baking pan that has been lined with parchment paper. Continue until all chocolate mixture has been made into coated chocolate drops. Bake at 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes.
- Cool 1 minute in pan. Remove to wire rack and cool completely.
These are tremendously quick and easy to make, and they look beautiful and taste wonderful! These can be whipped up in a hurry if you have unexpected company.
