Double Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Also from the family cookbook, these cookies didn’t spread as much as I was expecting them to spread, so I think I added too much flour?  This recipe is from my Cousin Julie, who is a great cook and was my confirmation sponsor.  For now, here’s the recipe:

Double Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

1 ½ c sugar

1 c margarine or butter

1 egg

¼ c water

1 tsp vanilla

1 ¼ c flour

1/3 c cocoa

½ tsp baking powder

½ tsp salt

3 c quick cooking oatmeal

16 oz pkg chocolate chips

Mix sugar, butter, egg, water, and vanilla.  Stir in remaining ingredients.  Drop dough by teaspoonsful on ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake until no indentation remains when touched, 10-12 minutes.  Makes 5 ½ dozen.  Bake in 350 degree preheated oven.
