Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe came from my mother-in-law many years ago.  It's origin I am not aware of. 

My kids prefer these over regular chocolate chip cookies. 

3/4 cup butter (soft)
1 3/4 cup all purpous flour
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg (room temp.)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups oats
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees
In large mixing bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium until smooth.  Add half flour, the brown sugar, sugar, egg, baling powder, vanilla and baking soda.  Beat till well mixed.  Mix in remaining flour, mix well.  With a wooden spoon stir in oats. mix well.  Stir in chocolate chips, mix well.
Bake on ungreased baking sheet 2" apart for 10-12 minutes (less time if using a dark cookie sheet).
Cool an a wire cooling rack.  Enjoy!
