2 c Butter
2 c Sugar (granulated, white)
2 c Brown sugar (dark brown)
4 lg Eggs
2 t Vanilla extract
4 c Flour (sift before measuring)
5 c Rolled oats (oatmeal), powdered finely
1 t Salt
2 t Baking soda
2 t Baking powder
24 oz Chocolate chips
8 oz Chocolate bar, finely grated
3 c Chopped nuts (I prefer walnuts, but use your favorite)
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Cream together the butter and the sugars.
2. Sift together flour, oatmeal, salt, baking soda, baking powder and shredded chocolate bar. Add eggs and vanilla to creamed sugar and butter, then mix all ingredients together. Mix chocolate chips and nuts into mixture.
3. Drop by onto ungreased cookie sheet in small drops. Bake 6 minutes or until done.
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. Yield: approximately 60.
A blender works very well to powder blender chops the oatmeal finer than a chocolate bar should melt at the touch the oats and the chocolate bar. The food processor. The powdered 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 chocolate 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.
