I really do not think I am a braggy person, but if there is one thing I can brag about it is my Chocolate Chip Cookies. I found this yummy recipe all the way back in high school and over the many years I have adjusted and tweaked the recipe to the point that this recipe is unbeatable. And just because I love you I made some to share.
Well okay I admit I only made them because I was craving them and the weather has finally started cooling so I don't mind turning on the oven so much, but hey if you feel like driving to the middle of a small town for a cookie I will be happy to share.
So here you go:
1 lb butter room temp
2 c white sugar
2 c brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla
6 cups oatmeal
2 c red wheat flour
2 c white flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 bag of good quality semi sweet chocolate chips.
Cream butter and sugars together. Add eggs and vanilla and mix. Put oatmeal in blender until it is a flour. Add dry ingredients to butter/sugar cream. Mix well. Add Chocolate Chips and mix.
Bake 375 for 8-10 min.
Cookie baking tips:
-As with all cookies they should appear a little under done when you take them out of the oven.
-Also if they are coming out a bit flat refrigerate the dough for a bit. If the butter is to warm to begin with the cookies will kinda melt, but if your butter if still kinda firm they will rise up good.
- The quality of chocolate chip you use really does make a big difference in how yummy your cookies will be.
- I started adding the whole wheat flour to try and add some more healthy grains to my life, but really it taste so much better. The wheat flour gives it a very yummy nutty flavor.
- This recipe has killed a few hand mixers , if you have a kitchenaid or bosch use that with the cookie paddle. If you don't have one mix the chocolate chips in by hand and really good muscles.
Enjoy!!! I was planning on eating that whole stack by myself, but as soon as I put my camera down my three children swooped in and prevented that. I guess my hips thank them.
