In keeping with one of my 2012 resolutions, I made oatmeal chocolate chip cookies yesterday. And they were so good! I used this recipe and only modified it a teeny bit. I didn't have chocolate chips (and didn't feel like walking to the store in the single digit temperatures) so I used chopped up chocolate bars instead. And I didn't add nuts because someone in this house doesn't like nuts in their cookies. I also followed the advice of a few reviewers who said to make the cookies a bit bigger and not to flatten them before baking. I assume this keeps them more chewy and moist (which they totally are) rather than flat and crunchy. Oh. And I baked mine for 13 minutes (rather than 9 minutes), turning halfway through as suggested.
Basically, these cookies rock.
And does your kitchen look like this after you have been baking or cooking? This is only a small sampling of the huge mess I made making these cookies. And there was also flour all over the floor. Of course.
