Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cups quick cooking rolled oats (not instant)
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 3/4 cups chocolate chips

Method

In bowl and using wooden spoon, cream together butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and salt until light; stir in vanilla. Stir in flour, oats and cornstarch just until combined. Gently fold in chocolate chips.

Divide dough in half; place each on waxed paper and using paper as aid, roll into 9-inch (23 cm) long log. Refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour, or for up to 24 hours.

Using serrated knife, cut each roll into 18 pieces; place, about 1/2 inch (2 cm) apart, on parchment paper–lined baking sheet. Bake in 275°F (140°C) oven until firm and bottoms are lightly browned, 40 to 45 minutes. Let cool on pan on racks. (Make-ahead: Store layered between waxed paper in airtight container for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 1 month.)
