Homemade cookies are so much better than store bought ones. Don't get me wrong. I am very happy with a package of Oreos. But they can't compete to homemade treats.
It had been a while since I'd whipped up any homemade cookies. These cookie bars sure hit the spot. We all loved them. I'll definitely be making these again. Thanks, Cookin' Mimi, for the recipe!
Double Chip Oatmeal Cookie Bars
1-1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups quick or old fashioned oats
1-2/3 cups of mixed chocolate and peanut butter chips (Nestle makes a combination bag)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Mix together flour, baking soda, and salt in a small mixing bowl.
In a large bowl cream butter and sugars together. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until mixed thoroughly. Slowly add flour mixture and mix until just combined.
Stir in oatmeal and chips by hand.
Grease a 15"x10" jelly roll pan and spread mixture to the edges.
Bake for 18-22 minutes or until golden brown.
Cool completely in pan on a wire rack.
Cut, serve, and enjoy!
