Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

I have great news!  I don't have gestational diabetes!  I had it with V, so they tested me 3 times this pregnancy and I am in the clear.  I can have fall desserts and birthday cake for several family birthdays in the next few months and lovely, lovely caffeine occasionally.  Starbuck's salted caramel mocha is a huge craving right now.

To celebrate, here is one of my favorite cookie recipes that my mother-in-law makes.  They are just crunchy enough and great with milk.

Washington Cookies (We aren't sure why they are called that.) or Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup margarine
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup chopped walnuts
2 cups oats
1 pkg. chocolate chips

Whisk flour, soda and salt together. Cream margarine and sugar in mixer. Add vanilla, then eggs and mix well. Stir in dry ingredients. Add oats. You might want to mix in the chocolate chips and walnuts by hand at the end so they don't get broken up. Drop by tablespoon onto cookie sheet. Bake 12-15 minutes at 350.

Makes about 6 dozen.
