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 brown sugar.
1 tsp vanilla.
Mix together in a large bowl:
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.
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
