Doubly Delicious Chocolate Chip Cookies

Let me let you in on a little secret. I’m a cookie girl! I *heart* cookies!!!! In honor of National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day I present to you a simple recipe which has made this cookie girl oh, so happy. There’s a hotel chain known for free sweet treats given to its guests. This recipe is as close to that cookie as my sister and I could find. It’s so good. It’s so, so good! It’s so good, in fact, that we would bake up batches (like dozens at a time) and give them away in plastic bags to begging friends and family.

I hope you enjoy this as much as we did!


Doubly Delicious Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/2 Cup rolled oats
2-1/4 Cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 Teaspoon baking soda
1 Teaspoon salt
1/4 Teaspoon. cinnamon
1 Cup butter, softened
3/4 Cup brown sugar, packed
3/4 Cup granulated sugar
1-1/2 Teaspoon. vanilla
1/2 Teaspoon lemon juice
2 eggs
3 Cups semi-sweet, chocolate chips
1-1/2 Cups chopped walnuts


Grind oats in a food processor or blender until fine.

Combine the ground oats with the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a medium bowl.

Cream together the butter, sugars, vanilla, and lemon juice in another medium bowl with an electric mixer.

Add the eggs and mix until smooth.

Stir the dry mixture into the wet mixture and blend well.

Add the chocolate chips and nuts to the dough and mix by hand until blended well.

For the best results, chill the dough overnight in the refrigerator before baking the cookies.
Spoon rounded 1/4 cup portions onto an ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.

Bake in a 350°F oven for 16-18 minutes or until cookies are light brown and soft in the middle. Store in a sealed container when cool to keep soft.

Eat or give away as often as you would like:)
