Source: Gale Gands's Short and Sweet
Author: Gale Gand and Julia Moskin


3 c rolled oats (no quick cooking)
8 oz (2 sticks) butter
1 1/2 c light brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Put 2 cups of the oats in the food processor and pulverize it until finely ground and floury. In a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter until soft and smooth. Mix in the brown sugar. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until well blended. In another bowl, stir together both the ground and the whole oatmeal, the baking soda and salt. With the mixer running at low speed, add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and mix just until blended. Add the chocolate chips and mix just until blended. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto the pan, leaving 3 inches between them, as they will spread. Bake for 13 to 15 minutes, until lightly browned. Let cool on the pan, then remove with a spatula.
