I wasn’t holding out on you by not posting this recipe. It was just a simple case of procrastination. I swear. I know you really like the oatmeal chocolate-chip cookies I send to work with Dave every so often, so now you can make them for yourselves. But don’t worry, I’ll still send some oatmeal love your way now and then. Bon appetit.
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
Recipe adapted from Gale Gand’s Sweet Dreams (Food Network)
3 tablespoons butter, room temp
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
1 tablespoon water
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cup rolled oats
1-2 cups chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon almond or vanilla extract
Mix together the butter, brown sugar, honey, egg, water and almond extract. Add the dry ingredients and mix. Drop teaspoons full of dough on a baking sheet and bake for 12 to 15 minutes in a 350-degree oven. If you want thick, chunky cookies, chill the dough in the freezer for a half hour or more.
