I must confess, I am a Chocolate Chip Cookie Serial Killer.
SuperMan (my brother) to me: You can bake everything ....why can you not bake chocolate chip cookies?!
Me (wailing): I DON"T KNOW!!!!
A normal person, would have given up after about 20 tries, not me. You tell me I can't do something, it is GAME ON.
Now that you know the back story, here is where the cookie recipe in shining armor comes riding in on the steed. :)
I have yet to mess up these chocolate chip cookies and I've been baking them for about 9 years. They consistently turn out just crispy on the edges and so soft in the middle. If I can do it, so can you! :)
Chocolate Chip Cookies
What's In It:
1/2 c oats
2 1/4 c flour
1 1/2 t baking soda
1 t salt
1/4 t cinnamon
1 c butter, softened
3/4 c brown sugar
3/4 c white sugar
1 1/2 t vanilla
1/2 t lemon juice
2 1/2 c chocolate chips
1 c nuts (optional)
What To Do With It:
Grind oats using a mortar and pestle, food processor, or coffee grinder*.
Cream butter, sugars, vanilla, and lemon juice.
Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each.
Add baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and oats. Mix well.
Add flour slowly.
Stir in chocolate chips by hand.
Chill completely. At least 4 hours.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Scoop 1/4c balls of cookie dough onto baking sheet lined with parchment paper or baking mat.
You do not need to flatten the mounds of dough.
Bake 16-18min or until the edges are browning.
Allow to cool on sheet for a moment or two. Then transfer to cooling rack.
P.S. These make KILLER ice cream cookie sandwiches. I can vouch for both butter pecan and vanilla ice cream. But I've been dying to try a mocha flavor as well. You're welcome ;)
*I use my coffee grinder or my mortar and pestle since my food processor is too big.
