Visiting Teaching (Oatmeal Chocolate Chip) Cookies

Come check out my new blog at

When Kevin and I were first married I had a wonderful visiting teacher for only 1 month. Her name was Emily and was very sweet. She brought these cookies to me; Kevin and I instantly feel in love with these and she willingly passed on the recipe. Now I am passing it on to you.

1 C - Butter
1 C - Sugar
1 C - Brown Sugar
1 tsp - Vanilla
2 Eggs
1 tsp - Baking Powder
1 tsp - Baking Soda
1/2 tsp - Salt
3.5 C - Old Fashioned Oats
2 C - Flour
1 C - Milk Chocolate Chips
1 C - Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

Cream butter and sugars. Then add eggs and the vanilla; mix well. Put baking soda, baking powder, and salt into the batter and mix. Add the oats; mix. Put the flour and chocolate chips in last. 

Fill your cookie scoop so it is heaping slightly. 
Place on parchment paper, silicone mat, or a greased cookie sheet.

Use your two fingers and push down the top of the cookies ever so slightly.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes (my oven is exactly 12 minutes). It took me a little practice on what to look for to know if they were done. You can't go off of color or else they are way over done. 

I pull mine out when they are a little undercooked in the center and let them sit on the cookie sheet for 3 minutes.

Then place them on a cooling rack.
Makes about 5 dozen
We only cook about 12-24 cookies and then I make cookie dough logs out of the rest. Wrap the logs in saran wrap and put in the fridge or freezer. They freeze PERFECTLY!
When you want more cookies just pull out of the fridge/freezer and cut off about 1/3 of an inch. No need to defrost them at all. Just throw them in the oven and enjoy!
