oatmeal cookies

the perfect oatmeal chocolate chip cookie.
we have been scrumptiousing our way through batch after batch of these things lately...the most "little helper" friendly cookie recipe i know...a playclay-like dough that is very forgiving.
1 c butter
1 c brown sugar
1 c all purpose flour
1 c wheat flour
2 c rolled oats
1 t baking soda
1 t baking powder
1 t vanilla
1/2 t salt
1/2 c hot water
1 c chocolate chips
(if you are crazy, substitute raisins for chocolate,
and add 1/2 t nutmeg and 1 t cinnamon)
dump everything in a bowl, add the hot water, mush up with the hands and then squash in the chocolate chips.
smush by tablespoons onto an ungreased baking tray
bake at 375 for 10 minutes or so.
the dough freezes well, so it is worthwhile to double-batch it
and store a bunch frozen in a pre-tablespooned state for an afternoon treat
or 2 or 3 or 4...
