CHEWY CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
CHOC-CHIP-1 - Chocolate chip cookies like Mrs. Fields makes
These cookies are a combination of oatmeal and chocolate
chip. They are very rich, but very tasty. The recipe was
obtained from a friend of a friend, who supposedly paid a
large amount of money for it. However, the cookies do not
taste exactly the same as the name brand.
INGREDIENTS (Yield approximately 60)
2 cups butter
2 cups sugar (granulated white)
2 cups brown sugar (dark brown)
4 eggs (large-use 5 if medium)
2 tsp vanilla extract
4 cups flour (sift before measuring)
5 cups rolled oats (oatmeal), powdered finely.
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
24 oz chocolate chips (being a purist, I prefer Toll
8 oz chocolate bar, finely grated.
3 cups chopped nuts (I prefer walnuts, but you can use
your favorite type.)
(1) Preheat oven to 375 deg. F.
(2) Cream together the butter and the sugars.
(3) Sift together flour, oatmeal, salt, baking soda,
baking powder, and shredded chocolate bar.
(4) Add eggs and vanilla to creamed sugar and butter,
then mix all ingredients together.
(5) Mix chocolate chips and nuts into mixture.
(6) Drop by onto ungreased cookie sheet in small
(7) Bake 6 minutes or until done.
A blender works very well to powder the oats and the cho-
colate bar. The blender chops the oatmeal finer than a food
processor. The powdered chocolate bar should melt at the
touch of your fingers.
I prefer my cookies just barely done, so that they remain
chewy. If you want to send your taste buds into heaven,
butter the cookies as they come out of the oven (still hot),
and eat them still warm with a glass of cold milk.
Note that cocoa is not the same thing as a shredded cho-
colate bar. Note also that oatmeal is not the same thing as
quick-cooking oats or instant oatmeal. Oatmeal means "rolled
oats," such as Quaker oats.
Difficulty: easy to moderate. Time: 30 minutes. Precision:
measure the ingredients.
