Cookie Wednesday: Barely There Oatmeal Cookies

This week's cookie is an oatmeal cookie. It's another thin and chewy cookie so it meets my chewy cookie preference and Alex's thin cookie preference. The cookie has a great vanilla and butter flavor that's nicely contrasted by the chocolate. These cookies spread so make sure to leave enough room between them on the cookie sheet. They are perfect for drinking with a big glass of milk too.

Barely There Oatmeal Cookies
Makes approximately 20 cookies

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 cup oats
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl cream butter and sugars. Add egg and vanilla and beat for one minute.

In a separate bowl combine the flour and baking soda. Add to the butter mixture and combine.

Stir in oats and chocolate chips.

Using a cookie scoop or a 1 Tbsp measuring spoon, scoop out the batter and line up 3 inches apart on cookie sheet.

Bake for 10-15 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Remove from oven and cool to room temperature.
