(From Everyday Food, Sept. 08, pg. 144)
1 1/2 cups old fashioned rolled oats (not quick cooking)
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
6 T. unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 t. pure vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350. In a medium bowl, whisk together oats, flour, chocolate chips, baking soda, and salt; set aside. Using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy, scraping down bowl as necessary. Add egg and vanilla; beat until combined. Gradually add oat mixture; beat just until combined.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto two baking sheets lined with parchment paper (or silpat). Bake until cookies are golden brown but still soft; 13 minutes. Cool on wire racks.
