Aunt Billie's Oatmeal Cookies

I make these allot. I think they are the everyday family favorite.

1 cup butter or margarine

1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 cups rolled oats

2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter with sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and beat well. Flavor with vanilla and add grated orange rind. Mix in flour, salt and rolled oats. Mix well. Stir in chips. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto lightly greased cookie sheet and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until lightly browned.
