Chocolate Chip And Walnut Oatmeal Cookies
I have to be honest with you—I’m not the biggest cookie fan in the world and I’m pretty picky when it comes to them. A cookie has really got to be something special to spark my interest, to pass my test, to earn my trust. In many ways, it’s just like dating! Or not, I don’t know…
They just never really enticed me the way cake or ice cream do. When I was a little girl, if given the choice between a cookie or some fruit, it’d for sure be the fruit! Every time. Even now—the fruit. Um, this is probably where many of you will probably click the ‘X’ up there to close down this tab, isn’t it? But you know, that’s too bad because I was just about to give you the low down on the best chocolate chip and walnut oatmeal cookie …ever. At least I think it is; and that’s definitely saying a lot because, well, I already told you, I’m picky with the cookie like that. So rest assured, this cookie will do right by you like a good
Listen my friends—I messed with this recipe until it was perfectly chocolatey, beautifully sweet with a touch of the salty (because yes, baked goods need salt too), and chewy the way it should be. It’s the most perfect chocolate chip and walnut oatmeal cookie. It just is.
This is a one-bowl cookie recipe right here. It’s extremely quick and super easy to make. Can it get any better? Well yeah, like I said, they taste amazing!
So I prefer milk chocolate chips to dark chocolate chips when it comes to cookies and I feel like this kind of cookie really needs the milk chocolate chip. To me, it’s just a better match with the textures and flavors of this cookie.
Well last night, a bowl of gorgeously ripe and delicious grapes that I picked up from the farmer’s market sat before me on the counter as I baked these luscious cookies. And so, I had that lifelong decision to make again… the cookie or the grape? Last night’s answer: I ate all the cookies—OK, only after eating all the grapes first. Well what else was I supposed to do while standing in the kitchen, waiting and staring at the cookies in the oven to finish baking?
Well, I really do hope you love this cookie as much as I do and please, do not forget— look to the cookie !
And here’s the cooking video for this recipe!
1¼ cups tightly packed brown sugar
½ cup white sugar
Preheat oven to 325º F (165º C). In a large bowl beat together butter, brown sugar, and white sugar. Add eggs and vanilla, and beat well. With a large spoon/spatula, mix in flour, baking soda, and salt until just barely mixed. Mix in oats, walnuts, and chocolate chips. Take heaping spoonfuls (about the size of golfballs) and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 15 min and you don’t really want to wait for the cookies to brown. They will be perfectly chewy. Enjoy!
