Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
Back Home Up Next

My favorite cookie is Chocolate Chip.  Oatmeal cookies are a close second.  When I found this recipe on the Net, I thought I struck gold!  Denise made these cookies and they are absolutely wonderful.

The cookies come out very dense, and usually rather large (to keep them together before cooking) and are very good for bringing to parties, etc.

Preheat oven to 350° F

Combine and set aside
2 cups (4 sticks) butter (or 2 butter flavored Crisco Sticks)
2 cups of brown sugar
2 cups of white sugar
4 extra-large eggs (or 5 large)
2 TEAspoons vanilla [an earlier version of this recipe inadvertantly omitted this ingredient!]

4 cups flour (sifted)
5 cups powdered oatmeal (take old fashioned Quaker Oats and put them through the blender until you get a fine powder.)
1 TEAspoon salt
2 TEAspoons baking POWDER
2 TEAspoons baking SODA

Combine both of the above (you’ll need a really big bowl!)

Add 3 cups / 24 ounces of chocolate chips (Optional: Add 8-10oz raisins, nuts, or peanut butter chips). I usually use 1 bag of chocolate chips and 1 bag of peanut butter chips

Form into little hockey puck shapes and place on greased cookie sheet.

Bake for 8-10 minutes (less is more when baking cookies! Soft is better!)
