I don’t remember where I got this recipe from (it’s written on the back of a torn out day calendar page), but it’s been a hit whenever I’ve made them. The cookies bake quickly, and they come out really soft and delicious. One of my friends came over and brought dog bone-shaped cookie cutters! This recipe made 16 cookies and 9 cookie bones.
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed light brown sugar
½ cup white sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 ¼ cup flour
½ tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3 ½ cups oats
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 325°F.
- Cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla.
- In another bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt.
- Stir the flour mixture into the creamed mixture just until blended, then mix in the oats and chocolate chips.
- Drop the batter by tablespoonfuls at least an inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet. In order to make the bone shapes, we placed the cookie cutter on the baking pan and filled it in with the batter.
- Bake for 12 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring the cookies to a wire rack.
