Yesterday I went into the kitchen to see what all the clamor was about. The sound of pots, spoons and mixers… my spidey sense was telling me that cookies were being made. Sure enough, there was Lori (my smoking hot wife) in an old pair of jeans, looking as beautiful as ever… baking my favorite kind of cookies.
I get to see my hot little lady daily (although those old jeans had her looking particularly steamy). But I only get to taste these cookies once a year. I’m not sure why, now that I think about it. These cookies rock! They are amazing. Maybe one step from a Giordanno’s Pizza (that’s huge by my standards). I should barter to see if we can make these cookies more often. They are Oatmeal Chocolate Chip. They aren’t a recipe I’ve seen anywhere else… only from my wife’s friend Dixie. And every time someone tries them, they say, “Oh my GOSH! I’ve got to get that recipe.”
These aren’t normal cookies… they have an 8 oz Hershey bar crushed into the mix. (drool… slobber). When you get to the final stages of the recipe… you almost have to break a few wooden spoons (we have) to stir them. I had to step in and do my part yesterday. Lori needs my huge biceps to stir the mixture every year.
An hour later, I was on the couch, eating the cookie dough. Oh! Amazing!!!
My favorite cookies and my hot wife… a great Christmas memory. It doesn’t get better than that.
Oh… I guess I should share the recipe.
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 cups butter
2 cups sugar
2 cups brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
4 cups flour
5 cups oatmeal
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. baking soda
24 oz. chocolate chips
one 8oz. Hershey bar
3 cups chopped walnuts (optional)
Cream together- butter, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Set aside.
Using a blender, grind all of oatmeal into fine powder (do a small amount at a time). Pour into a LARGE bowl. Next, grate chocolate bar and combine with oatmeal. Now add flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda to same bowl and mix well. Combine creamed ingredients and dry mixture (here’s where the stirring takes some real strength… and a big bowl!) After well blended, add chocolate chips and nuts. (and this is where I eat a bunch of the dough!)
Make golf ball size cookies. Place 2” apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for about 9-11 min.
You are soooooooo lucky I shared this recipe with you!!!!
