Barbara convinced me.......


.....to share my chocolate chip cookie recipe. I am unable to think critically about politics, art, and literature this weekend, so let's explore comfort food. Here is the best chocolate cookie recipe:



Hazel’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Preheat oven to 375.
Cream together coarsely in food processor:
1C butter
1C brown sugar.
Add:
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla.
Mix together in a large bowl:
2C flour
1 ½ C oatmeal (best to do: process flour, oats, and the 4oz dark chocolate here: this is the secret:Do this in the food processor first, before the everything else, put aside until you get back to this step) and add in
½ tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda.
Combine the creamed mixture to the dry mixture in the large bowl.
Stir in:
12 oz chocolate chips...more if you want
1½ C chopped nuts if you like them.
Make golf ball sized cookies, set 2” apart and bake for ~13 min....depending on whether you like them chewy, crunchy, etc. They should look light brown on the top

If the Republican ticket manages to sleeze its way into power for another 4 years, this is the cookie to eat before curling up into the fetal position.

gasp, now people won't be so wowed by my baking- they'll realize that they could have made those amazing cookies all along.

Barbara warned me that sharing the recipe would be problematic, but I would guess that the actual number of bakers to eaters is very small!
