2 sticks of butter or margarine
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup boiling water
2 cups quick oats
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350° .

Beat the sugars and butter until creamy, when the sugar is getting dissolved.

Combine the rest of the ingredients. Stir well. Refrigerate the dough for an hour or two for best results.

For easy clean-up, spread aluminum foil on a cookie sheet. Spray well with vegetable oil spray.

Roll cookie dough into golf ball size rounds. Place 12 on a cookie sheet.

Bake for 13 minutes at 350° .

These cookies will store well for a couple of days. We cover them with a bag and never refrigerate - room temperature is fine.

If they do start to stale up, we open the bag and put a few slices of white bread on top of the cookies, and then reseal the bag. This will bring them back to life in a few hours.
