Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

I can't remember what blog I saw these on first (if you let me know I'll credit them, I promise)-but the title of the recipe alone told me I HAD to make them. You see..I LOVE oatmeal cookies..but I'm a fair weather raisin fan...oh and I'm out of butterscotch chips...so I didn't have a good reason to make just oatmeal cookies. Until now. These are awesome. Just chocolatey enough. Just chewy enough. I loved them! Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies (Hershey's originally with adaptations by me!) 1 cup (2 sticks)) butter-softened 1-1/2 cups granulated sugar 1 cup packed light brown sugar 2 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 1-1/2 cups ap flour 1/2 cup cocoa powder 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 3 cups quick cooking oats 1/2 cup chopped nuts (I omitted these) Heat oven to 350 Beat butter and sugars together until nice and fluffy-blend in eggs and vanilla. Stir together flour, cocoa, soda and salt and add gradually to butter mixturee. Stir in oats-the batter will be REALLY stiff! Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 11-12 minutes then take out. Do NOT be tempted to bake these longer. Cool a couple minutes on the pan, then remove to wire rack to cool further. It makes ALOT of cookies so these would be great to take to an exchange or just into work to show your coworkers how much you love them, erm...put up with them. :)
