Chippy Choco Cookies

There are no really awful ways to make a chocolate chip cookie, I grant you that. But, given that, there are difference recipes, and over time, you discover that you like one a bit more than another.

Myself, I don’t like the cakey, chewy varieties. I like my cookies crisp.

This has been my standard-bearer for years now, and I have never seen reason to go looking for others. It is a bit different.

It comes from Joy of Cooking.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 2/3 c AP flour
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 sticks butter
  • 3/4 c sugar
  • 2/3 c light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 tbsp milk
  • 2 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/3 c old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1  3 oz chocolate bar, grated or finely chopped
  • 3/4 c chopped walnuts or pecans or other nut of your choice

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Whisk together the first 4 ingredients
  2. Beat the butter on medium speed in a mixer until creamy and lightened in color.
  3. Add everything up to the rolled oats and beat until well blended
  4. Add the flour mixture and blend well.
  5. Finely grind the oats in a food processor.
  6. Stir them into the batter along with the chips, chocolate bar and nuts.
  7. Use either a greased cookie sheet or one covered in parchment.
  8. Use a 1″ scoop,  and place cookies about 2″ apart, pressing down each cookie slightly.
  9. Bake in a 375° pre-heated oven for 8-12 minutes. Let stand upon removing until cookies have hardened up.

Serves: about 2 1/2 dozen
