Servings: 50 cookies
Prep Time: 15 min
Cook Time: 7 min
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients Add to grocery list

2 sticks butter (room temperature)
¾ cup brown sugar, packed
¾ cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ teaspoon water
2 eggs
1 ½ cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
2 cups quick cooking oats
2 cups chocolate chips





Preheat oven to 350º F.

Spray pan with nonstick cooking spray. In medium bowl whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. In a separate large mixing bowl, using a hand mixer, cream butter and sugars until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time until fully incorporated. Add vanilla and water and beat until fully incorporated. Add dry ingredients to the butter mixture. Stir in oats and chocolate chips. Using a teaspoon, drop dough on prepared baking sheet and bake for 7 minutes. Cool on wire rack.

Notes from the Paula Deen Test Kitchen: We always use parchment paper on cookie sheet.  Makes for easier clean up.  A cup of chopped pecans makes these cookies even yummier!

I love these cookies...I often change from the chocolate chips to peanut butter chips...they are so versatile!

I mixed and baked everything to the letter....using the teaspoon there were well over 50 cookies...the baking time necessary was well beyond the 7 minutes as per the directions in my convection oven....You may want to retest this recipe...the cookies were delicious...but inconsistent in texture since I had to keep testing and retesting for readiness to come out of the oven

I love Paula Deen! I have yet to find a recipe of hers that isn't AMAZING, these cookies are no exception! Every time I make them the entire batch is gone by the days end! I cook them for 10 mins instead of seven though, they turn out chewy instead of gooey.

Mmmm good! I've tried many oatmeal cookie recipes in my time and this one is now at the top of the list. I added raisins and pecans to the mix, in addition to the chocolate chips, and boy 'o boy! The whole family gives this recipe a 5-star thumbs up.

my family just loved the oatmeal chocolate chip cookies they were out standing keep up the good work paula

By debbie b on April 22, 2011


They are good but I had hoped they would be better with the Paula Deen name attatched to them. I need more flour for my area apparently.

By B Breck on January 15, 2011


Hey Yall, These are excellent cookies, I recomend them 110% (add the pecans). Easy to make and the kids gobble them up. Happy Thanksgiving.
