Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is my favorite way to eat oatmeal. In a cookie!
Warm cookies and cold milk, what a perfect combination!
 A favorite after school welcome home treat. I bake up one cookie sheet at a time.
After the batter is mixed, I roll them into little balls. I store them in a container in the refrigerator. That way I can then bake up as many as we want at a time. Fresh baked warm cookies, anytime!
 It's extra easy if you have a stand mixer. If not, a hand mixer works for most of the steps.
Adding the oatmeal, chocolate chips and chopped pecans last.
You will have a stiff batter. You can also do this part by hand with a good spatula or wooden spoon.
I use a meatball scoop to get even size balls.
Flatten them slightly and bake. Reserve the rest to bake later if you like. Sometimes I like to have them with coffee for breakfast!

1 C (2 sticks) butter, room temperature
3/4 C light brown sugar
3/4 C white sugar
2 eggs
2 t vanilla
1-1/2 C flour
1 t baking soda
pinch salt
1 t cinnamon
3 C oatmeal (quick cook)
2 C (12-oz bag) chocolate chips
1 C chopped pecans

Beat together butter and sugars on medium speed until fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add flour, soda and cinnamon on low speed. Stir in oats, chocolate chips and nuts. Drop heaping T onto baking sheet. Use a meatball scoop if you have one. Flatten slightly. Bake @350º for about 12-15 minutes. Remove from oven and let rest on cookie sheet for 2 minutes them remove. Enjoy them warm!
