1-1/2 c. sifted all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 sticks butter, softened
1/2 c. firmly packed light brown sugar
1 c. granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1-1/2 c. old-fashioned rolled oats
1 c. semisweet chocolate chips

Mix together flour, baking soda, and cinnamon

Beat together the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar at medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla

At low speed beat in flour mixture until blended. Fold in oats and chocolate chips. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for one hour.

Preheat oven to 350. Grease 2 baking sheets.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place cookies, 2 inches apart, on prepared baking sheets. Flatten each cookie slightly.

Bake cookies until lightly browned around edges, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer baking sheets to wire racks to cool slightly. Transfer cookies to racks to cool completely.

Tip: Make dough ahead of time and freeze it. Later use defrosted dough to make cookies in minutes!
