Grandma June's Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 10 oz. Dark Chocolate Buttons
- 3/4 cup margarine
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 cup flour
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 3 cups uncooked oatmeal (not instant)
Heat oven to 325° F. Cream together margarine, brown sugar and white sugar. Add & mix well egg, vanilla, flour, salt and baking soda. Stir into batter uncooked oatmeal.
If dough seems a bit stiff, add 1 tbsp of water. Add dark chocolate buttons. Bake on a greased cookie pan for 13 minutes (no longer if you want them chewy). Let them set up a couple minutes before removing from pan to put on cooling racks.
Yields approx. 2 dozen (3 inch) cookies; depending on how much your helper samples the dough.
