Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is my favorite oatmeal cookie recipe. Since I don't like raisins (as you may have gleaned from all the TWD recipes that include them), these are oatmeal chocolate chip.
Crispy edges and chewy centers, these are SO good. Since looking at food makes me gain 5 pounds, these will go to my family who's coming in town tomorrow. Only 8.5 more weeks until baby boy!
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup margarine
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 t vanilla extract
2 t baking soda
1/2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
2 1/2 cup flour
1 cup old fashioned oats
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (you can use more; we don't like too much chocolate in our cookies)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Cream butter/margarine and sugars together until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla and combine. Add baking soda, powder, salt and flour, and mix until just combined. Stir in oats and chocolate chips.
Drop by rounded tablespoon on ungreased cookies sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes. Cool on pans for two minutes before cooling completely on racks.
