Print Recipe


  • 1 cup butter softened
  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup boiling water
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 ½ cup dark chocolate chips


  • In a deep bowl, cream the butter, sugars, and vanilla.
  • Add the flour and salt and mix until combined.
  • Dissolve the baking soda in boiling water and add to the mixture. Fold in the oats and chocolate chips
  • Chill the dough for 30 minutes to reduce spread. It can stay in the refrigerator for longer, but doing so won't have any extra effect.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  • Role the dough in to balls about 1 to 1 1/2 inches in diameter and place on the baking sheets.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until slightly golden on top.


Substitute raisins for all or half of the chocolate chips to make a delicious batch of oatmeal raisin cookies.
Whatever cookies you can't eat within a few days can be stored in the freezer for a few months.
