Chocolate Chip Cookies

Another recipe my mom made me make as a kid.

1 c butter
1 c sugar
1 c brown sugar (packed)
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
2 c oatmeal
1 c chocolate chips
about 1/2 cup powdered sugar (optional)

Cream butter and sugar and let stand for 5 minutes. Then add brown sugar and let stand again for 5 minutes. Add eggs, vanilla and 1 cup flour and mix well. Add remaining flour and baking powder and soda. Mix well before adding oatmeal. Fold in chocolate chips. Roll by spoonful into powdered sugar (this step is optional). Then put dough on greased baking sheet and cook in a moderate oven (350) for approximately 10 minutes or until lightly browned.

This is by far my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe, because you can make it even sweeter than a regular cookie by rolling the dough in powdered sugar before you bake it. Personally, I think if you only have one chocolate chip recipe in your collection, you should have this one. I'm not biased or anything...
