you will *not* be disappointed!

i'm not usually a baker, but today i caught the bug. i combined a couple trusted recipes to come up with the best damn oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. try my recipe. you'll be glad you did!

2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
2 sticks softened butter
3/4 cup regular sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 cups (12 oz) chocolate chips
2 cups oatmeal

wisk together flour, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt in a bowl.

separately, beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla. add eggs one at a time, beating well after each; next add the flour mixture. stir in chocolate and oatmeal slowly.

bake at 375F. 7-9 minutes. i like to turn the baking sheets half-way through so they brown evenly. and i also don't recommend putting two baking sheets in at once. take your time, people. enjoy standing around in your PJs and apron. is that just me?

my apartment smells like what i imagine heaven must smell like. chocolate and nutmeg. aw yeah.

happy thanksgiving!!!!!!!
