Chocolate cookies!?

Question by (angry) Gay Guy: Chocolate cookies!?
We are beginning a total kitchen renovation on Thursday and we will be without access to the area for 3 weeks. I want to make some cookies and other goodies before the kitchen is ripped apart so we can have some tasty snacks for the first few days.

I need a recipe for Ultimate Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. My great-grandma had a very good recipe but the recipe died with her 3 years ago. She had won awards for it and was horrified that someone would steal her secret. She never told ANYONE. I’ve had cookies that are similar from Meijer, a Midwest grocery store chain (like a smaller Walmart). They are marketed as “Meijer’s Ultimate Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies.” They do not have nuts and are nice and chewy. There are no raisins. They are basically oatmeal cookies (soft and chewy, same texture) with loads of chocolate chips inside. They are delicious and I need a recipe!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 to 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon (depending on how much you love it, I put about 2)
1 cup (2 sticks) softened margarine or butter-flavored shortening
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg Tbsp. warm water*
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 1/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Mix together flour, baking soda, and cinnamon in a large bowl.

Beat together margarine/shortening, brown sugar, and granulated sugar in a second bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in egg replacer and vanilla.

Beat flour mixture into margarine/shortening mixture until blended. Fold in oats and chocolate chips, then stick into the fridge to chill for a bit while the oven heats up. Put the bowl back into the fridge while each batch of cookies bakes, to keep the dough chilled.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease 2 baking sheets.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place cookies 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets, flattening each cookie slightly.

Bake until lightly browned around the edges, about 10 to 12 minutes. Let cookies cool on baking sheets for a minute or two before transfer to racks to cool completely.

Makes 2 to 3 dozen, depending on size.

    Try this out:

    1 1/2 cups FLOUR
    1/2 teaspoon SALT
    1/2 teaspoon BAKING POWDER
    8 ounces (2 sticks) UNSALTED BUTTER, softened
    1 cup LIGHT BROWN SUGAR, packed
    1 cup GRANULATED SUGAR
    2 large EGGS
    3 cups OATS
    1 1/2 cups CHOCOLATE CHIPS

    1. Preaheat oven to 350 degrees, and line two large cookie sheets with parchment paper.

    2. Whisk flour, salt and baking powder together in a medium bowl.

    3. In a separate bowl, by hand or by mixer, beat butter until creamy. Add sugars and beat the mixture until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in eggs one at a time.

    4. Stir dry ingredients into butter-sugar mixture with a wooden spoon or a large rubber spatula. Stir in oats and chocolate chips.

    5. Place dough onto parchment-lined cookie sheets by large spoonfuls (about 2 tablespoons each), leaving at least 2 inches between.

    6. Bake until cookie edges turn golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Slide cookies (on parchment) onto cooling rack. Let cool, and store in airtight container.

    I guarantee you these cookies are great. My family and friends love them.

    Good Luck with everything! :)

    try looking on http://www.crisco.com
    That is the website given on the packaging of Crisco sticks. (I use them, so much faster than the can) They have several ‘ultimate’ recipes for cookies, and hopefully you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for. I know that their regular Oatmeal cookie recipe is what I use in my ‘at home’ bakery business and it gets RAVE REVIEWS! Best of luck, I know what you mean about ‘missing’ a recipe from a grandparent, wishI could make potato salad and fry chicken like my grandmother used to, have tried and tried, without much luck, good luck to you t hough! :)

    1 cup LIGHT BROWN SUGAR, packed
    1 cup GRANULATED SUGAR
    2 large EGGS
    3 cups OATS
    1 1/2 cups CHOCOLATE CHIPS

    A tip : Place a piece of bread (any type) in with the cookies to prevent them from becoming stale. If they hang around long enough, that is!
