Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Print this post
I had a hankering for something sweet last night, so I took an easy recipe off the back of Safeway's "Organic" brand semi sweet chocolate chips, modified it a bit, and got the most wonderful cookies, both chewy and crispy in texture! It made over 3 dozen too, which was nice to bring to work for everyone.

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies


Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Whisk together in one large bowl:

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed golden brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

Stir together in another bowl:

2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
2 1/2 cups quick rolled oats
1 cup chocolate chips

Add dry mixture to the wet, stir with spatula until incorporated. Put tablespoon sized balls of dough onto ungreased non-stick cookie sheet. I then pressed the balls down with my fingers just a smidgen. Bake for 10 minutes. Even if they don't look cooked, take them out! They will cool into lovely chewy morsels with a crisp outside texture. ENJOY!

My silly cupcake t-shirt!

I made this a few months ago, and forgot to post about it! I might change the design eventually to be more tattoo-like, instead of cartoon-y, but feedback is appreciated!

I haven't been baking lately, because I've been pretty busy taking photos and enjoying the summer, but I think my next batch will probably involve beer. Oh yea baby!

Last Friday I did another photo shoot for Cherry Street Coffee House, who have several locations in Seattle. I can't even imagine how many shots of coffee we had by the time the session was over, zoinks! I was so buzzed, yet oddly sleepy. Funny how that works. We were at the cafe for almost 2 hours, and would have been there longer if it hadn't been for the fact that there weren't enough ingredients for me to take photos of the breakfast items. I came home and was going to go to a friend's BBQ, but my exhaustion got the better of me. I'll probably get to snap some more shots in the next few weeks of all the things we missed.

Aren't these just gorgeous?? People have such talent, I tell ya.

However, I'm not sure how you could eat one. Like that middle one with all the flowers...are the flowers hard or soft? Is it just a mouthful of gum paste and fondant?

I suppose there's something to be said about sinking one's teeth into a cupcake that has the gooiest frosting on it, AM I RIGHT??
