Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

My sister was sick over the weekend so we got to babysit the Aubers!! We had a ton of fun!! She is a true joy to be around. We danced, went to the park, colored, sang songs, baked cookies, etc.

Here are some photos from the weekend. That Aubrey is a silly one! I am also sharing my oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe. I love these cookies! They are one of my “go to” cookies!! We baked these on Saturday and they didn’t last long!

We had a dance party in our PJ’s on Saturday!
Aubrey dancing with Baxter.


It was chilly out so we bundled up to go to the park, but Aubrey wanted her sunglasses too…and of course some candy!


Aubrey and Josh marching to the park!


Silly Aubs!!


Riding the horses! Giddy up!!


She loves swinging!! Hold on tight!


When we got back we had some lunch. Most of the yogurt
ended up on Aubrey’s face!


She didn’t want to take a nap so she started watching football with Uncle Josh.
It didn’t take her long to crash. She fell asleep like this! Too funny!
I guess we wore her out!


Aunt Ria baked cookies for everyone!! Delicious!!
We had a great time with Aubrey!!


Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

½ c. brown sugar
1/2 c. white sugar
1/2 cup softened unsalted butter
1 egg
1 tsp. Vanilla
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Baking powder
1/2 tsp. Baking soda
1 1/4 c. flour
1 1/4 c. oats
1 cup Chocolate chips-I prefer semi-sweet but use your favorite!

Whisk together the dry ingredients in a bowl. Combine sugars and butter until creamy. I use my Kitchen aid. Add the egg and vanilla, mix until combined. h Add flour to wet ingredients. Mix  Mix until just combined. Stir in the oats and chocolate chips. Drop cookies on baking sheet.  Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes! Don’t let them get too done…they are better when they are soft!

Makes about 2 ½ dozen cookies. You can double if you want more!

    Aww, so lovely of you to entertain Aubrey while your sister was sick!! Especially with those cookies :-)

    Semisweet chocolate chips = the best, hands down.
