Choco chip N Oats Cookies

Christmas......brings those innate memories deep inside. I love the festive mood that Christmas brings...the season of fun,joy and happiness. Brings in about strong urge for baked goodies and other delicacies. I still do not understand the reason why we end up making some savory or sweet dishes for most festivals and yet Christmas has its own way and stands apart with baked goodies and chocolates etc.
My chocolate making craze is touching its peaks and I am loving the flavor that emanates each time I melt chocolate. My friends have been dragging me into chocolate making and my latest experiment was with rum n raisins which turned out to be super hit while I anticipated it not to be. I ended up using real rum soaked fruits and little rum instead of using rum essence. The recipe will be posted soon.
So getting back to the recipe which reads on my post header. This is a simple no mess and easy to make recipe which was handed over to me by my friend. Its a sure shot win if you are a beginner just like me at baking. Secondly my blog has been deprived yummy baked goods for quite a long and now I pull myself to do something like this.

Take a bowl and sieve the dry ingredients like Flour,baking soda,baking powder, cocoa powder(if using) and oats powder. Keep it aside. Preheat your oven to 175 C. In another bowl, cream butter and powdered sugar with the help of a whisk until softened and add vanilla essence and chocolate chips to it. Now add the sieved dry ingredients to this butter mixture. Combine all the ingredients well to make it soft pliable dough with the help of milk. Divide this mixture into equal parts. Shape these balls into cookies by flattening them on a baking tray lined with butter paper and place the cookies at a distance from each other. Bake these cookies for about 15 to 20 mins for chewy ones and 20-25 mins for crisp cookies. Once done, cool them and store in a air tight container. Here you go with Yummy, crispy and light cookies.

My Notes:
Baking time depends on your oven type, so keep an eye once the cookies turn golden brown in color and this usually happens after 15 mins.
I used whole wheat flour instead of all purpose flour. But you can use half a cup of all purpose and half a cup of whole wheat flour.
I do not like intense sweet cookies. So reduced the sugar amounts. But if you have a big sweet tooth. Please feel free.
