Do you have a favorite kind of cookie? Maybe you love a good ginger cookie, or the good ol’ chocolate chip cookie? Or perhaps you like it a bit fancier with a meringue or macaroon. All good choices.  And all cookies have their own “thing” that makes them unique and special.  And we won’t judge you based on your preference. But these are possibly the best oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, so we thought you should know.

You see, I am a lover of old-fashioned oatmeal cookies. Especially, especially the version with chocolate chips. My all-time favorite! I realized that I had yet to put up my recipe for my Best Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies for you all to try for yourself. I apologize. Today I give you my bestest cookie recipe (in my opinion)…the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie.

To be truthful, this is also the very best cookie dough. There are many times this cookie doesn’t happen because the dough is consumed before baking.

Disclaimer: you should not eat raw cookie dough. (Do what we say…not what we do!  Raw eggs are just unwise…you can substitute milk for the eggs if you plan on eating it as dough.  This is the wise thing to do!)

Tips for making the best oatmeal chocolate chip cookies:

  • Don’t bake these cookies as long as you think you should. Take them out a minute or two before you think they are completely done.  They’ll still be a little wet.
  • Bake on the middle rack, NOT too low so you don’t burn the bottoms.
  • Use old-fashioned oats, if you can. If not, don’t worry. But the old-fashioned really are better.
  • Don’t grease your cookie sheet, you’ll get burning on the bottoms.
