Clementines's Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Clementines's Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
(from back of Ghirardelli's package)
Makes about 5 dozen

1 cup butter softened
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
1 cup unsifted flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
3 cups uncooked oats
2 cups Ghirardelli Semi-sweet chocolate chips (I like to mix it up with the 60% chips too)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

In a large bowl, beat butter with the sugars at medium speed until creamy and lightened in color (about 4 minutes). Add vanilla and egg, mix on low speed until incorporated. Stir flour with baking soda, salt and spices; add to creamed mixture, mixing well. Stir in oats. Fold in chocolate chips. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake 8-9 minutes for a chewy cookie, 10-11 for a crisp cookie. Cool on baking sheet; remove to wire cooling racks.
