Jean's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Makes 18-24 (Yes, this is half what we usually make.)

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 9 minutes/batch

Cost: $1.90

(butter: .50, brown sugar: .17, sugar: .08, egg: .10, flour: .08, oat flour: .07, chocolate chips: .90)

Note: To make your own oat flour, just throw some oats in a blender and blend until flour-y consistency. Freeze what you don't use.

1 stick butter

1/2 C brown sugar (packed)

1/2 C white sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 egg

1 C all purpose flour

1/2 C oat flour

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 bag chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Cream butter, sugars, and vanilla. Beat in eggs.

Combine flour, salt, and baking soda. Mix. Add to wet mixture.

Stir in chocolate chips.

Bake for 8-10 minutes. I did mine right at 9 and thought they were perfect. Don't overbake these boogers or you will be sad--they should be just browning at the edges and maybe a wee bit on the top.

These freeze well as does the dough. You can freeze the dough as a hunk or roll it into balls and freeze it in individual serving sizes. Then you can just throw the balls onto a cookie sheet and add a couple minutes to your cooking time and voila.
