Blue Ribbon Chocolate Chip Cookies

I thought I'd kick off the blog with an American classic...these cookies are so yummy and I always have people ask me for the recipe. They're also good with 1/2 chocolate chips and 1/2 peanut butter chips.

2 1/2 C oatmeal
1 C butter
1 C sugar
1 C packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 t vanilla
2 C flour
1/2 t salt
1 t baking powder
1 t soda
3 C chocolate chips
1 1/2 C chopped walnuts

Measure oatmeal into a blender and blend to a fine powder. Beat butter & sugar until fluffy. Stir in eggs and vanilla. Add flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder and soda. Stir until blended. Add chocolate chips and walnuts. Roll into balls and place two inches apart on baking sheet. Bake at 375 for 10 minutes.
