Suzie the Foodie sent out a Tweet a couple weeks ago about it being time to bake cookies. Seeing as almost the only thing I contribute to this site is baking recipes, I of course immediately jumped on the bandwagon.

Foodimentary said it was National Oatmeal Cookie Day on April 30th so that’s what I cooked up. I’m just now getting the recipe up, but my, my, my it is a keepers.

This recipe came from my pal Heidi Flaming-Buschman. (I know, that’s a freaking AWESOME last name, right?!) The only changes I’ve made is to swap out the shortening for all-butter, and since I can’t get chocolate chips here in Denmark, I chop up a big bittersweet chocolate bar.

On the purple recipe card Heidi gave me as at Christmas a decade ago, under serving size it says, “Makes a large amount.” Use your biggest mixing bowl because it really does make a ton. Have yum!

Heidi and Monte Flaming-Buschman’s Favorite Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

2 cups butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
3 1/3 c flour
1 tsp salt
2 tsp soda
4 c oatmeal
2 cups chocolate chips

Cream sugar and butter together. Add eggs and vanilla. Then add dry ingredients to creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet. Bake for 8-12 minutes at 375 degree oven. Makes a large amount.

Ah, a reference to the Flaming-Buschmans. I still remember that hilarious story about the mother of one of her students bad mouthing the teacher whose name she couldn’t seem to remember!?
Did I ever tell you that this year I discovered I developed an oversensitivity to oats? Crazy, but true. Someday I hope to return to this love of mine.

This has become my favorite cookie recipie. Oh and the banana chocolate chip muffins…to die for!! Josh requests them regularly! I think he purposefully doesn’t eat all the bananas we buy in hopes they’ll turn black and I’ll make muffins. 🙂
