chocolate chip cookie recipe

In a large mixing bowl with hand-held electric mixer, cream together the butter and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla, beating well. In a separate container, mix together flour, oats, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Place small amounts of dry mixture into blender or food processor and process until mixture turns into powder.

Mix the creamed mixture with the flour and oat mixture until just blended. Add chocolate chips, grated milk chocolate and chopped pecans, if using. Shape dough into balls about 1 1/2 inches in diameter, and place two inches apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 375° for 10 to 12 minutes. Makes three to four dozen soft chocolate chip cookies.
