I am getting so hungry thinking of these cookies! They are chewy inside and crunch when you bite into them. They have just the right amount of chocolate, too, and are best eaten warm when the chocolate can ooze out. I had one of these two days after making them, and with 10 seconds in the microwave, they tasted just like they did when they came out of the oven. Do you prefer chewy or crunchy?
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 stick unsalted butter, cold – cut up
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup chocolate chunks
1 cup rolled oats
Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, set aside.
Cream butter and sugars in large mixer bowl. Add egg and stir.
Gradually add flour mixture. Stir in oatmeal and chocolate chunks. Make large disks of dough (a little less than 1/4 cup each). Refrigerate for 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place dough on lined cookie sheets about 3 inches apart. Bake at 375 degrees for 12-14 minutes.
Yields 8 cookies.
