Runner up: Oatmeal Chocolate-Chip Cookies
The world's best chocolate chip cookie contest was SO much fun!! My husband and classmates loved all of the experimenting and baking....we had 10 recipes submitted!!
This recipe was sent to me from a fellow blogger named Alyssa in Florida, who found my blog from the website 20SomethingBloggers. It is a great website for - you guessed it! - 20-29 year-old bloggers. I first heard about the website at an event called Ignite Waterloo.
It was a very close call, but this is the runner up, 2nd place :) I will post the grand-prize winner tomorrow!! The grand prize winner gets to do a guest blog on the website and of course gets bragging rights forever :) Alyssa got the recipe from an old Betty Crocker cookbook, and I have seen it on the website AllRecipes - it truly is a classic oatmeal chocolate-chip cookie.
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups old-fashioned oats
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter, sugar and brown sugar. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture. Stir in oats and chocolate chips.
Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees F for 11-13 minutes. Cool on wire racks.
