Oatmeal and Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oatmeal and Chocolate Chip Cookies
Great tasting Cookies

I made these for the monthly challenge of “Sweet and Simple Bakes” event hosted by Maria and Rosie. This is the first time I am participating in this challenge as I was so much attracted by the simplicity of the baking recipes they provide and also to improve my baking skills. Thanks for hosting such a nice event Maria and Rosie! The cookies have come out well and were delicious. 

Oatmeal and Chocolate Chip Cookies


Ingredients:
  • ½ cup Butter, softened
  • ½ cup Sugar
  • ½ cup soft Brown Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 tbsp Water
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 cups Rolled Oats
  • 1 ½ cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 level tsp Salt
  • ½ cup Chocolate Chips
  • Some Raisins or Chopped Nuts (I just added a handful) (But I felt I added too much, so next time I will reduce these or not add at all when using chocolate chips).
Preparation:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Cream the butter in a large bowl or in an electric food mixer until soft.
  2. Add the sugars and beat until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add the egg, water and vanilla extract while still beating.
  3. Reduce the speed and gently mix in the oats, flour, salt and raisins to form dough. 
  4. Using your hands, roll the dough into walnut sized balls (I flattened them a little bit) and place slightly apart on two baking trays.
  5. Bake in the oven for 12-25 minutes or until light golden brown, but still slightly soft in the center.
  6.  Allow to cool on the trays for a minute before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
  7. These tasted delicious. 
  8. Thanks for the easy recipe Maria and Rosie. Hope you like them! :)
