Deluxe Cookies

I mentioned in an earlier post that Snickerdoodles were basically sugar cookies.  I couldn’t completely understand the popularity of Snickerdoodles, but I don’t have the same uncertainty over these.  These cookies have everything!  The oats help keep the cookie moist and everything else adds flavor.  This recipe will yield 5 dozen real size cookies.

Dry Stuff
4 cups flour
2 tsp. soda
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
5 cups steel cut oats

Wet Stuff
2 cups butter
2 cups white sugar
2 cups brown sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla

24 oz. chocolate chips
3 cups nuts (any combination of peanuts, macadamia nuts, cashews)

Combine all the dry stuff and put to the side.

Cream the butter and both sugars.  Add eggs and vanilla and mix well.  Add all the dry ingredients.  Blend well.  Add chocolate chips and nuts and finish mixing.  Roll into balls and place 2″ apart on cookie sheet.  Bake 10 minutes in oven at 375 degrees.
