Chocolate Chip Cookies
packed brown sugar
semi-sweet chocolate chips
I used Ghirardelli
Heat oven to 350 for toasting the oats.
Once oats are toasted raise oven temperature to 375.
Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Place butter in mixing bowl and lightly cream. You should do this for about one minute.
Add the sugars to the butter and cream together.
Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Add vanilla and lemon juice, mix well.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, salt, oatmeal, baking soda and cinnamon.
Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mix about a spoonful at a time, while slowly mixing.
Add the chocolate chips and walnuts, if using.
Using a cookie scoop, scoop cookies onto baking sheets and leave about 2-3 inches in between the cookies.
Bake for 13-15 minutes. You want the edges only to be a little brown.
Remove from baking sheet and place on a wire rack to cool.
If you want a larger cookie use about ¼ cup of cookie dough instead of a cookie scoop.
