My Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies
This makes a huge amount of cookies and I use a stand mixer. I have halved the recipe without problems but still needed the stand mixer so I don't bother. Maybe your hand mixer is more powerful.
2 C butter
2 C sugar
2 C brown sugar (I actually use the whole pound because so much is left of the box)
2 tsp vanilla
4 C flour
5 C oatmeal* (use a blender to make flour out of this)
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
Slowly add dry ingredients to mixer. Mix well. Dough is ready to add any or all the following:
24 oz chocolate chips (I use milk chocolate
8 oz grated chocolate bar
3 C chopped nuts
I've also added raw sunflower seeds so go ahead and experiment
Bake on ungreased cookie sheets. Make golf ball sized cookies, set 2" apart and bake at 375˚F for 15 minutes. Makes 112 cookies.
Or use a cookie scoop. I use a small one, bake at 350˚F for 11 minutes. Most of the time, not all the dough makes it as cookies but I have gotten 104 cookies before.
*I have no idea out much oatmeal flour this makes, when I got the recipe, oatmeal flour wasn't found in the grocery stores easily. Or at all!
