With Valentines Day coming, this is a good time to pull this recipe out. These are the cookies that will get you laid, guarantee you a promotion, mend any fence, cure a cold, and in my case, win a blue ribbon at the 1975 4-H Fair.
Just like all cookies:
Cream: 1 stick of butter, ½ cup brown sugar, ½ cup sugar
Add: 2 eggs, 1 tsp vanilla
Stir in 1 ¼ cup of flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp baking soda
Fold in 1 cup of rolled oats, ½ cup chocolate chips, ½ cup chopped nuts (I like walnuts or pecans)
Bake 350 for 12-15. (With my elevation and convection oven, these cooked in 8 minutes-watch that first batch closely.)
