Given to me my a friend, who knows a friend, etc........way back in 1987. The grinding of the oatmeal is critical. Bake these cookies on the second level from the bottom of the oven.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 2 1/2 cups rolled oats
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.
Cream butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla until very smooth and fluffy.
In a separate bowl, mix together flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. In a food processor, blend oatmeal until fine. Add to flour mixture.
Stir butter mixture into flour/oatmeal mixture. Blend well.
Add chocolate chips and walnuts. Stir until blended. Roll into golf balls size and bake for 8-10 minutes. You do not want to over bake these.
