THE OUTRAGEOUS OATMEAL COOKIE . . . WITH CHOCOLATE CHUNKS, NUTS AND DRIED CHERRIES

There are those days when you want to bite into an oatmeal cookie that’s a little over the top.   A  superlative chewy cookie with just the right amount of  old fashioned rolled oats, nuts, chocolate and fruit.  A cookie with deep molasses flavor, light and crisp on the outside and chewy, dense and soft in the center. A cookie of such divine decadence that just one cookie is simply not enough.  This may just be the ultimate, outrageous oatmeal cookie.

This is an oatmeal cookie recipe you can claim as your own.  Substitute pecans or hazelnuts for the walnuts or dried cranberries for the cherries.    Quick oats can be substituted for the old-fashion oats, but they will yield a cookie with slightly less chew.   Other than the options be sure to follow the remaining ingredients to the letter.  It is the extra moisture found in brown sugar and the combination of baking powder and baking soda that produces a cookie  that is thin,  light and crisp on the outside, and chewy in the middle.  These cookies really spread so be sure to allow 2 to 2 1/2 inches between cookies.

MRSBUTTERFINGERS has the recipe.  Bon Appetit dear friends.

    • You are absolutely right Beth. Dangerously delicious! I served them as dessert with a small scoop of ice cream. My guests wanted seconds. Cookies!! Who knew! Bon Appetit Virginia

    • Jo Nell, you know I always have to gild the lily a little bit. Just a tiny tiny scoop of home made ice cream. Hope all is well with you. I see tiny green leaves on my hydrangeas and roses. Spring is on the way. XX Virginia
