Justin. Timberlake. This weekend my girlfriend and I hit up the 20/20 Experience Tour in Phoenix, and damn did he put on an amazing show! Pretty sure I lost my voice from all of the screaming and singing at the top of my lungs. And you know what? Worth it. I've successfully seen JT every single time he has come to the valley. Both as an NSYNC member and as a solo artist. And it's one hell of a good time. Just re-living the night over and over with my photos and videos! Up next. The real reason you're here. Cookies.
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
Makes 4 dozen
- 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1 cup dark brown sugar, lightly packed
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs, room temperature
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 3/4 cups old-fashioned oats
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. salt
- 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- flaky sea salt (optional for garnish)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl, cream the butter and the sugars together until light and fluffy. Add in the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add in the vanilla extract.
In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and chocolate chips.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet, 1/2 at a time, mixing well after each addition. Once mixed well, scoop by tablespoon onto 2 large non-stick baking sheets. If using sea salt, place a pinch on each dough ball before baking.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes, rotating the baking sheets halfway through (move the bottom one to the top rack, and the top one to the bottom rack), until golden brown. Remove and let cool before placing the cookies into an airtight container.
