Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oh my! These are simply out-of-this-world-good!! I got this recipe from a cookbook that we received as a wedding present, and adapted it to our taste. I LOVE to add pecans, but didn't have any today. It is a family favorite, for sure!

1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 egg (I forgot this in my picture!)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup rolled oats
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350.

Mix your dry ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl. Set it aside. Use your electric mixer to cream both sugars with your butter. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until light and fluffy.

Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and beat on low until blended. Stir in the oats and chocolate chips. The dough should be crumbly. Drop onto cookie sheets and bake for 15 minutes.
