Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 sticks softened unsalted butter
3/4 c brown sugar
1/2 c white sugar
2 eggs (room temp if possible)
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 c white flour
3 c oats
1 c chopped walnuts
1 c semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Mix butter, sugars, and vanilla extract until fluffy. Add eggs, soda, and salt and mix until blended. Beat in flour, then oats. Stir in nuts and chocolate gently until incorporated into dough.

Use a tablespoon to scoop dough. Roll into a ball and flatten to form each cookie.

Bake 8-11 minutes until cookies are lightly browned. Let cool 5-10 minutes and transfer to a cooling rack.

Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
