Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies,....OBI style.

One of my earliest memories of fall was the smell of my mother baking cookies. Summer we had peanutbutter cookies,  oatmeal  cookies in the fall, and  sugar cookies around christmas time.
Every Saturday from May to the end of October, I make cookies for guests. Over the years, I have developed this recipe. Hope you like it:

2  sticks of unsalted butter
1  cup of brown sugar, packed
1  cup of white sugar
2  eggs
3  teaspoons of vanilla
3  cups of sifted flour
2.5 Cups of quick oatmeal
2 Tablespoons of peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 Cups of choclate semi-sweet morsels

optional: 1 teaspoon cinanmon,  M and M's

Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and beat well. Add sifted flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda and mix well. Add oats and mix. Add chocolate morsels and blend. Drop by tablespoon on cookie sheet. Bake in preheated oven for about 15 minutes ~ and then enjoy!
