Jake's Favorite Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I sent these cookies to Jake while he was in Iraq and recieved rave reviews. I decided to dig out the recipe again to take to a going away on Saturday. What I love about this recipe is that you mix everything in only one bowl, so less dishes!

2 sticks butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
3 cups oatmeal
2 cups choc. chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix butter, brown sugar, and white sugar together until creamy.
Mix in eggs and vanilla.
Mix in flour, salt, and baking soda.
Mix in oatmeal and chocolate chips.

Bake 10-15 minutes.

I'm excited to get back to the states, where ovens can heat baked goods more evenly. Even by rotating the pan during cooking, a few do get a little burnt.
