Tried and true recipes. Gaining a love for baking from my grandmother, she always made sure there was something homemade at home; especially on Sundays. Often, she would experiment with different recipes and we soon found which ones were favorites because they were on constant repeat.
This is my favorite oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe, which is quick and easy for when you are in a hurry to spread some goodness or simply enjoy a treat!
Here is the recipe:
Personally, I omit the chopped walnuts + add 1 pkg. of chocolate chips. This is a personal preference, but it makes them oh, so delightful.
Tips & Tricks on achieving the perfect cookie:
- Follow the recipe in order (it ensures the perfect cookie)
- Beating the first column, and then hand mixing the second column of ingredients makes a difference.
- Use a table spoon (heaping) to measure out the cookies, this maximizes the amount of cookies produced and creates uniform goodness.
- Cook for 6.5 minutes; this is key. The consistency of the cookies become crisp on the outside and soft on the inside.
I hope you share these with someone you love, or treat yourself. Happy baking + sharing something handmade.
