Hello there fellow cookie lovers– I know. I know. There are definite preferences when it comes chocolate chip cookies. Some people like them thick, doughy and soft. But not me. This is an old family fave–and this version is crunchy crispy. Delectable!
Whipped them up with the grand-girls this afternoon– for a good munch while we watch the new Tinkerbell movie. Simple pleasures.
CRISPIEST OATMEAL CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
1/2 cup butter*
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup oatmeal
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 cup flake cereal**
1 cup chocolate chips
In a large bowl beat together the butter, brown sugar, white sugar and egg with an electric mixer. Then blend in the flour, oatmeal, salt and baking powder. Finally mix in the cereal and chocolate chips.
Drop the cookie dough by spoonfuls onto a baking sheets sprayed with cooking spray– about 1 1/2 ” apart–these guys spread!!
Pop them in the oven at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes until they are nicely browned around the edges. Immediately eat 2 or 3 straightway not from the oven.
*If you a getting the butter cold from the fridge, microwave it 4 or 5 seconds to bring it down to room temperature.
**Any flakey cereal will do– We had Special on hand, but corn flakes of oat flakes are A-OK.
