  • 1 cup

    white sugar

  • 1 cup

    packed brown sugar

  • 2 cups

    all-purpose flour

Optional

  • 1 bag

    semi-sweet chocolate morsels or a combo of white chocolate morsels and Craisins, depending on the version of cookies you want to make

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and set aside baking sheets (greased or with foil).

  2. Mix the ingredients. In a large bowl, mix the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar. Beat in eggs one at a time. Stir in vanilla. Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt. Add rolled oats. Add your flavored morsels of choice.

  3. As soon as the mix is well incorporated, form uniform dollops with a spoon and place onto baking sheets, leaving ample room for the cookies to expand when baking.

  4. Bake for around 10 minutes, and remove them once the cookies are set but not burnt.

  5. Transfer cookies to a cooling rack and allow them to cool before serving.
