Killer Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is our standard chocolate chip cookie recipe. Like most things I tend to throw in little extras depending on what's in the cupboard. Sometimes I'll add a 1/4 of a teaspoon of ground cloves or maybe a little ground ginger. Chopped dates would work well with this too. They're chocolate chip cookies. It's pretty tough to mess them up.

1/2 cup of quick oats
2 1/4 cups of flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 sticks of butter
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3/4 cup granulate sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 eggs
3 cups chocolate chips
1 /1/2 cups of chopped walnuts (if desired)

Set the oven at 350 degrees. Cover baking sheets with parchment paper.

Combine dry ingredients in one bowl: oats, flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.

In a second bowl, cream butter, sugar, vanilla and lemon juice. Add eggs and beat until well mixed.

Stir the dry ingredients into the eggs mixture and blend well. Add the chocolate chips and nuts. Use a small ice cream scoop or spoon to place the cookie onto the baking sheets.

Bake until the cookies are lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Let them cool on a wire rack, and you're off to the races.

Good stuff.
