Best Cookies Ever

Chef Q makes these oatmeal and white chocolate cookies quite often. On Tuesday night, he made a batch to take to a potluck event at work the next day. I ate four of these before he reminded me what they were for. Oops!
Well, there were obviously enough cookies to go around because the leftovers are pictured above. Actually, there were five left, but I ate two shortly after Q came home.
The recipe came out of the Joy of Cooking cookbook.
Preheat oven to 350.
--1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
--1/2 cup granulated sugar
Cream with:
--1/2 cup butter
Combine and beat until smooth:
--1 egg
--1 teaspoon vanilla
--1 tablespoon milk
Sift together and add to the above ingredients:
--1 cup all purpose flour
--1/2 teaspoon double-acting baking powder
--1/2 teaspoon salt
When beaten smooth, add:
--1 cup uncooked quick rolled oats
--3/4 cup chocolate chips (we prefer 1 cup of WHITE chocolate chips)
Beat mixture well. Drop cookies 2 inches apart on well-greased cookie sheet and bake until light brown.
