If you enjoy thin, crispy, buttery cookies that are moist and chewy in the middle, Betty Yuasa has a great version of chocolate chip cookies.  This recipe makes four dozen cookies.  You won't be able to stop eating them!  Simply addictive.

1-1/2 cup flour, sifted
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1-1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1, 12-oz package semisweet chocolate chips

Mix the flour, soda and cinnamon, and set aside.  Beat butter, brown sugar and sugar at medium speed until light and fluffy.  Beat in the egg and vanilla.  At low speed beat in the flour mixture.  Fold in the oats and chocolate chips.  Cover with plastic wrap and chill for one hour.  Preheat oven to 350.  Grease two baking sheets.  Shape the dough into one-inch balls.  Place cookies two inches apart on cookie sheet.  Bake until lightly browned around the edges, 10-12 minutes.  Transfer baking sheets to wire rack to cool slightly, then remove cookies from baking sheet to cool completely.
