Chewy Oatmeal and Chocolate Chip Cookies

 I'm itching to bake some cookies. For a long time now, I have not come across a cookie recipe that makes me want to make it. I need the "please please please make me" kind of photos and recipe that catches my eye.

Till I read Dwiana's blog. The first recipe I spotted was chewy oatmeal! Ah, I love my oatmeal cookies, especially with a mug of hot chocolate or coffee. Usually I make mine with olive oil but thought I could give this butter version a good as well.

Making cookies are often not as easy as what it seems. They can be temperamental. More so than baking cakes I think. But there is a sort of satisfaction one can have that it is not easily found cooking or baking other dishes.

One mistake I made with these- is that I should have pressed them down to a flatter disc. I think this would have resulted in a slightly nicer looking cookie. Nevertheless, it did deliver what it says it would. It's chewy with a lovely texture. I love the hint of cinnamon that goes with it.

Chewy Oatmeal and Chocolate Chip Cookies (makes around 40 cookies)
1 cup of butter
1/2 cup of granulated sugar
3/4 cup of brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup of plain flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp of cinnamon
3 cups of rolled oats
1 cup of chocolate chip

Preheat Oven 180C

Beat butter and both sugars till well combined. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix till combined.

Fold in flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Then add oats and chocolate. Spoon teaspoons onto prepared baking tray. Press the dough slightly to flatten. Bake for around 10-15 minutes (Dwiana's require 10 minutes), cool complete.
