These are simple, easy cookies that taste a little bit like Christmas with cinnamon and nutmeg. I whipped these up in no time on Friday night, a perfect, after dinner snack. Not only were they delcious right out of the oven, they actually tasted better the next day as all the flavours had really come together. Now all I need is a glass of egg nog!
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 cups chocolate chips (note that this is more than 1 bag)
- 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.
In another bowl, beat butter until soft and creamy. Beat in brown sugar and white sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time and add vanilla.
Reduce speed and stir in flour mixture in three stages. Mix in chocolate chips and oatmeal.
Drop tablespoons of dough onto a greased baking sheet.
Bake in oven preheated to 350 degrees, for 10-12 minutes until golden and slightly firm to the touch.
Let cool to a wire rack.
Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
