I love me a good chocolate chip cookie. For a long time I did not like oatmeal in my cookies, or nuts, or anything except cookie and chocolate. A purist, if you will. But then this spring I stayed a few nights at a DoubleTree. Funny story, I never actually got one of the cookies while I was staying there, but after I complained about it in a review online, the manager sent me a tin of six cookies. Anyway, the cookie changed my life. A whole new world of cookies with Things has been opened for me. In honor of this momentuous occasion, I present to you an oatmeal-walnut chocolate chip cookie.
A few notes on this recipe. When I scoop cookies into an icecream scoop I gently press the bottom before clicking them out. (Is that a term, what is the proper term for that? who cares!) I don’t like my walnuts in big chucks. So I buy the walnut crumbles and pulse it once or twice in the blender before adding it to the dry mix. Mini chocolate chips work really well in this, I didnt have any on hand today and I wanted cookies, so they got big ones. I like mixing milk and dark chocolate chips in my recipes. It’s fancy, and delicious. Who doesn’t love a fancy and delicious cookie?!
