Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies ::: Cure for a rainy day

My kitchen aid stand mixer is my best friend and my worst enemy.

Especially on beach days that turn into couch days because of a massive thunderstorm in Miami.

Since receiving the mixer as a gift from Peter’s family for Christmas I’ve made banana peanut butter cookies, banana cookies, peanut butter cookies, and chocolate chocolate chip cookies. None have been so fabulous that I felt like blogging them though.

THESE however are fan freaking tastic and you should go make them right now.

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies     makes 24

Adapted from Martha Stewart 

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 stick), softened, plus more for the pans
  • 6 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 6 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon water
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 /4 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 375 °F. Butter or line 2 rimmed baking sheets with a slipmat.In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt, and cinnamon.

In a large bowl {I used my stand mixer}, beat together the butter, sugars, egg, vanilla, and water. Add the flour mixture and stir to combine. Stir in the oats and chocolate chips.

Drop tablespoons  of the dough onto the baking sheets, spacing the dough 1 inch apart. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until lightly golden in color. Let sit for at least 3 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

    I really could not live without my stand mixer. These cookies sound like the perfect next thing to make in it!

    I’ve never felt the need to get a stand mixer. Are they that much better than the hand ones?
    These look delicious! Love oatmeal cookies.

      I never wanted to buy one for myself. My boyfriend’s mother knew this, so she bought me one for Christmas. It is just SO EASY. I didn’t previously have a hand mixer though so not sure the comparison. You can throw ingredients in and walk away. If you use your hand mixer a lot it might be worth it. My boyfriend calls it the most used Christmas gift ever, second to my Digital SLR camera.
