Mom's Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe is really fantastic. Especially if you already have the quick mix made (see my blog post All-Purpose Baking Mix to find out how to make it) or you can use store-bought (such as Bisquick.) I told Willie I would be baking some and he said "Hmm, that'll work." (That's his way of saying that it's something he'd like to try.)

So, here's what you'll need:

3 C. Quick mix
3/4 C Brown Sugar
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 egg, well beaten
½ C milk
1 C quick rolled oats
1 C Semi sweet chocolate chips

Start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees.

Mix the quick mix, brown sugar and cinnamon together in a large bowl. Remember to always pack your brown sugar to measure it.

Measure out a cup of milk and beat the egg well.

Mix these into your wet ingredients until well incorporated. Add the chocolate chips and oats, and mix them in as well. 

At this stage of the process I like to ditch the spoon and mix the ingredients into the dough with my hands.

Drop the dough by the spoonful onto an ungreased cookie sheet. You don't have to worry too much about having a ton of space in between, because these cookies won't expand much.

Bake 12-15 minutes. Once the peaks on the cookies are brown you should be good to go. Let them cool a little before you remove them from the pan. Enjoy! They are tasty!
