Ann's Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe was given to me by my Mother-in-law, Ann. Delish!

You will need:
1 lb of butter (meadow gold)
4 eggs
2 cups white sugar
2 cups packed brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla

Cream all of the above ingredients
Then add:
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
4 1/2 cups of flour
6***cups instant oatmeal

*** I find that its best to add the oatmeal a cup at a time. I also only use about 4 1/2 to 5 for a whole batch. You are looking for a sticky ball that isn't too thick, be conservative. Cook the first batch and you can see if they spread out and become thin = add more oatmeal.

After the oats are mixed in pour in milk chocolate chips and mix until just combined. Use a mini-scoop to create uniform balls and pat down the tops to make flat one inch-ish cookie dough blobs. Bake 400 degrees for about 6 minutes - just until the bottom of the cookies are starting to turn golden. (the tops won't turn golden - try not to overcook.)

I usually make a half batch and stick some in the freezer in an air tight container to enjoy later.
