Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

"Wow, what's that blurry picture?" you may be asking yourself.  "And why is it backward?"
"Wait, is that a recipe?  Is Alison about to share something delicious with us???"

Well, reader, the answers to your questions are as follows:
1) It's a picture of me holding a recipe card.
2) Because I am a technological wizard.
3) Yes.
4) Absolutely yes.

"What kind of blog is this, anyway?  So far we've had cheesy poetry, ISIS, and now cookies."

5)  Who knows.

It has come to my attention that it has come to the attention of most of my acquaintances that I really love cookies.  I eat them at all hours of the day, but especially for breakfast.  (This is true.  I had two this morning.  And yesterday morning.)

The best cookies I know of are my mom's oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, and today I am sharing the recipe with you:

Oatmeal Chip Cookies

1 C softened butter
1 C brown sugar
1 C white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2 T water
(blend the above together)

2.5 C flour
1 tsp soda
1 tsp salt
(sift the above together)

Mix the wet and dry ingredients together.  Add:

2 C quick oats
2 C chocolate chips

Chill in refrigerator overnight, if desired, to get the best out of this recipe.
Bake at 350 degrees F until center appears "set."

I would love to hear if you actually make this, and if it turns out as well as my mom's (which were so good she served them as wedding favors at my sister's reception and they got as many compliments as the meal).
