Cooking 101 - The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Trust me when I say that I've tried hundreds of chocolate chip cookies. These are the BEST, by far. You've got to try them to believe me! (This recipe came from a friend of mine, Amy Olson)

You'll need:

1 1/4 c. room temperature butter (the real stuff, not margarine)
3/4 c. brown sugar, packed
1/2 c. sugar
1 egg
1 t. vanilla

1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 t. salt
1 t. cinnamon
1/8 or 1/4 t. nutmeg (your preference)
1 t. baking soda
3 c. oats
12 oz. chocolate chips
1 c. chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter, sugars, egg and vanilla on low speed. Don't overmix - but make sure it's all blended well. Add the rest of the ingredients until mixed well.

Spoon medium-sized cookies onto cookie sheet and bake for approximately 9 minutes. Cookies should be a little gooey and slightly browned around the edges. Let cool for a couple of minutes before trying to take them off of the pan.

We actually enjoy our cookies frozen. I know, I know, it sounds crazy - but it's good!
