Small Batch (6 Cookies) of Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is perfect when you just need a few cookies and don't want to make a huge batch. For me, it made 6 regular sized cookies or 12 mini cookies. 

2 Tbsp. plus 2 Tsp. room-temperature, unsalted butter
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
2 Tbsp. granulated sugar
1 Tbsp. beaten egg
1/2 tsp. good vanilla
1/3 cup flour
1/8 tsp. baking soda
1/8 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup rolled oats
Preheat oven to 350°.

Cream the butter and sugars together in a medium bowl with a wooden spoon.  Mix in the egg and vanilla and beat well. 

In a separate bowl, stir together flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda.

Stir the dry ingredients into the butter/sugar/egg mixture until well-blended and then stir in the chocolate chips and oats.  The dough will be stiff.  Divide batter into 6 balls of dough and place onto a cookie sheet that has been lined with parchment paper.   These cookies don't spread much, so you might want to flatten the mounds slightly with your fingers before baking.

Bake for 8-12 minutes.  Be careful not to over-bake the cookies for best results.

just what I was looking for, they are in the oven. Had to use coconut oil because I was out of butter, so we will see how they come out
