Barbara Bush’s famous chocolate chip cookie recipe:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups quick-cooking oats (not instant)
1 (12 ounces) bag dark chocolate chips, preferably Valrhona
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt onto waxed paper. Set aside.
Beat together butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla in a large bowl until fluffy. Stir in flour mixture until well blended. Stir in oats and chocolate chips.
Drop batter by rounded tablespoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Transfer cookies to wire rack to cool.
