Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Judy Garcia Recipe

By Judy Garcia snflwr8351

These can be made using the original recipe with chocolate chips, or you may substitute raisins. Often I will make and then divide my basic dough in half, and then add chocolate chips to half, raisins to half.

The cookies in the picture were made using raisins, as my husband and son like them better than the chocolate chips.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
These oatmeal cookies are both delicious and satisfying. The use of chocolate chips is a great option for those who don't care for raisins... Of course, I like to add chocolate wherever I can!

    Very good. Might just be my oven, but I needed 7-1/2 minutes baking time. Still, chewy and moist with good flavor. I used milk chocolate chips.

    i used dark chocolate chips and they were excellent... and with the other half i used raisins, and added a half a teaspoon of cinnamon to that half of the dough... :)
