quick chocolate chip oatmeal cookies

On Saturday we had a family lunch to celebrate T's upcoming 4th birthday. I made almost vegetarian chili, cheesy cornbread, a Nigella ginger spice pudding cake and at T's request, chocolate chip (oatmeal) cookies. I use a quick recipe from the Joy of Cooking

Quick Oatmeal Cookies (Joy of Cooking)
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 c. flour
6 tbsp. butter
3/4 c. rolled oats
1 beaten egg
1/2 tsp. soda
1/4 c. granulated sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
(1 tsp. cinnamon)

Blend everything together.

2 tbsp. milk or water
1 tsp. vanilla

Beat together until blended.
1/2 c. chocolate chips

Blend the chocolate chips into the batter and spread into a cookie tin and bake at 350 deg F for 10-12 minutes. Cool and cut into squares.

(So I actually make square cookies with this recipe but my guys don't see past the chocolate chips so it works!)

(This is T in his new swimming goggles eating a cookie!)
