Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies

My dad loves oatmeal cookies. So when I decided to host a fathers day dinner I knew right away what dessert to make. These cookies turned out great. Very very chewy. I will definitely make these again. I got this recipe off of my message board and I can not remember who gave it to me! If you recognize it let me know and I can give credit :)

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 TBS sugar
2 large eggs
11/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 1/4 cups old-fashioned oats
2 cups Ghiridelli Chocolate Chips {I used chocolate chunks}
3/4 cup walnuts, (toasted and COOLED) {I ommitted these}

Preheat oven to 375°F.

With a mixer, beat butter and sugars in a bowl until light and fluffy. Add eggs and beat until just blended. Add in vanilla, baking soda, and salt. Beat well.

With a spoon, gently mix in flour until just blended. Gently stir in oats, chocolate chips and walnuts. Do not over mix.

Place rounded spoonfulls of dough on sheets about 2 inches apart.

Bake for about 10-13 minutes or until the edges start turning golden. For a crispier cookie, cook until completely golden, 15-16 minutes. Watch carefully, as 30 seconds can make the difference between "chewy" and "rock hard".

Cool cookies on sheets for 1 minute, then transfer to a rack to cool completely
