Of all the cookbooks I have in life, I love this one the most.
My old, worn down allrecipes cookie collection. It’s like fifty cents used on Amazon, and it is AMAZING. It is full of some of my very favorite cookie recipes of all time. Any time I feel like making cookies, I just start thumbing through it. I’ve made at least half the cookies in this book.
I tried a new one yesterday, for Chewy Chocolate Chop Oatmeal Cookies. As you can see, they turned out a little flat- next time I will add another 1/4 cup of flour and 1/2 tsp more baking soda. Although not terribly pretty, they were delicious. My husband ate 4 of them – FOUR directly out of the oven.
They have that sweet/saltiness that we all love in oatmeal cookies, and the flatness makes them crispy around the edges and soft in the middle.
I will definitely be making these again.
Recipe from allrecipes
1 cup room temperature butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour (I will add another 1/4 cup when I make this again)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda (I will add a full teaspoon next time around)
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups quick cooking oats
1 cup chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
- In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture until just blended. Mix in the quick oats and chocolate chips. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.
- Bake for 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
