PREPARATION

1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Lightly grease 2 11 x 17-inch baking sheets with margarine or nonstick cooking spray.
2.In a large bowl, using a wooden spoon, cream together the butter and sugars, until light and fluffy. Stir in the eggs, 1 at a time, until completely incorporated. Stir in the vanilla and set the mixture aside.
3.In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
4.Stir the flour mixture into the butter mixture and mix until completely incorporated. Stir in the oats. (The batter should be stiff but not sticky.) Add the chocolate chips.
5.Using a tablespoon, drop 2-inch rounds of dough onto a cookie sheet, leaving about 2 inches between each cookie.
6.Bake on the center rack of your oven for 10 to 12 minutes, until the cookies are light brown on top.
Variation
Chipwiches: Place a dollop of vanilla ice cream between 2 completely cooled cookies. Press together, wrap tightly with plastic wrap, and freeze. You'll be a hero doling out these treats in the summer.
Tip If you like your cookies chewy, let them cool for a minute on the baking sheet, then remove them with a spatula to a wire rack. If you like crunchier cookies, set the baking sheet on the wire rack and let the cookies cool (and harden). While the first sheet of cookies is baking, prepare the second sheet.
