Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

“I got this out of the "Mom's Best Desserts" cookbook. I collect cookbooks, and I picked this one up at a garage sale, and I always try to make at least one recipe out of a cookbook a week, and this was it. These are super tasty, and I think that the cinnamon adds a great taste. I've never added cinnamon before and I think that really makes a difference.”

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, sift together the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the butter, brown and granulated sugars, eggs, and vanilla. Beat until creamy. Add the flour mixture and beat until blended. Then beat in the oats, chocolate chips, and nuts.
  4. Drop rounded tablespoons of the dough 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until the cookies are golden.
  6. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes. Then use a spatula to carefully transfer the cookies to wire racks to cool completely.
