Add 2 eggs, one at a time, beating well after each egg. Add 2 tbsp pure vanilla extract.
In another bowl, combine 4 c all purpose flour, 2 tsp baking soda, 2 tsp salt.
Add the flour mixture into the butter mixture, about a cup at a time.
Now it's time to think about chocolate chips. What kind do you use? I like to use a combo of milk, semi sweet and bittersweet...it gives interest to every bite. Did you know that every bite could have interest? It can!!!
Add about 2 c of your chocolate chips of choice AND 3/4 c oatmeal.
I love to use an ice cream scoop to put the dough on the cookie sheet. Little Jack likes the scoop, too, because he knows that each cookie is the same size...he just has to figure out which cookie has the most chocolate!
