Chocolate Chip Cookies

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

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 2 large baking sheets. In a bowl, combine the butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar; mix well until creamy. Beat in the egg and add the vanilla extract; set aside. Sift together the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Add in the flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix well with an electric mixer. Stir in the oats and chocolate chips. Spoon about 1-1 1/2 tbsp. of the dough onto the baking sheets about 2 inches apart. Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Allow cookies to cool for 2-4 minutes and transfer to wire racks. Enjoy!

*Johnna’s tip: Chocolate chip cookies taste the best when they are warm and served with a side of milk. If you’re really feeling like a treat add 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream to a bowl and top with a couple of these chocolate chip cookies, gotta love it;-)
