"A friend brought these to a picnic. After one taste of the warm-from-the-oven cookie, I knew I had to have the recipe. These are now the most requested cookie by my family. The recipe makes a HUGE batch of big cookies, but they do freeze very well. The 5 dozen amount is a guess, I've never counted! We love these and hope you will too! Yields 5 dozen"

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Step 2

Cream together, using a stand mixer: butter, sugar and brown sugar.

Step 3

Add the eggs, one at a time, and the vanilla. Blend well.

Step 4

Blend 2 1/2 cups of the oatmeal in a food processor or blender.

Step 5

In a separate large bowl, mix together: flour, all of the oatmeal (2 1/2 cups processed and 2 1/2 cups whole), salt, baking powder and baking soda.

Step 6

Add the dry mixture, on low - a bit at a time, to the wet ingredients and blend together until fully incorporated.

Step 7

Add the chocolate chips and blend in on low. (Add nuts here, too, if you want.).

Step 8

Scoop balls onto cookie sheets, spaced a few inches apart. I like to make them about 1 inch balls.

Step 9

Bake for about 10 minutes, depending on your oven.

Step 10

Get the gallon of milk ready!

What can I say - this is just the perfect cookie LOL I halved the recipe and used gluten free flour mix for cookies, and they turned out perfect, even though I used only half the amount of sugar, i.e. 1/2 cup each brown and white sugar for the half recipe instead of 1 cup each. Will make them again this way! Thanks for sharing.

Absolutely wonderful cookies Kathy. The best chocolate chip oatmeal cookies that I have ever made. They taste amazing. I have made them twice, the first time they were perfect, light tender and puffy, the second time I added a little too much butter and they spread quite a bit and were crisp, they taste even better than Dad's. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe. Well worth the extra effort. Made for First Time Tag Game.
