Chocolate Chunk Cookies II


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • Ad
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1-1/4 cups chocolate chunks


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease two large baking sheets. Combine the butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar in a large bowl. Beat with a wooden spoon or an electric mixer set on medium speed until creamy. Beat in egg and vanilla extract; set aside. Sift the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda into a small bowl. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, beating continuously. Stir in the rolled oats and chocolate chunks. Spoon tablespoonfuls of the dough, about 2 inches apart, onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake cookies until lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Let cookies cool for 1 minute before transferring to wire racks. Repeat with any remaining dough.


Note: Use semisweet, milk or white chocolate of a combination of all three, for the chocolate chunks. You can also substitute raisins for a healthier treat.
