Regardless of the story (it’s false!), it makes a pretty good cookie. It’s become our family’s favorite cookie, and we’ve made a few improvements along the way.
Step 1: Ingredients
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla (or almond extract)
2½ cups oatmeal
1 1/2 cups flour
½ cup almond flour, or increase flour to 2 cups
½ tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
12 oz chocolate chips
4 oz chocolate bar, grated
FYI: Since whenever we make cookie dough, it seems like only half of the dough ever makes it to the oven, I like to use the packaged "Real Eggs" so there's no worries about raw eggs.
Step 2: Preparation
Coarsely grate the chocolate bar.
Cream butter and both sugars.
Add eggs and vanilla; mix together with flour, oatmeal, and rest of powdered ingredients.
Add chocolate chips, grated chocolate.
Step 3: Freezing the dough
Scoop out ¼ cup portions of dough onto parchment paper. Using a 2 ½ inch biscuit cutter or ring mold, press the dough flat with your fingers inside the mold.
Freeze the cookie pucks for at least ½ hour.
A nice benefit is that once the cookie pucks are frozen, you can store them in the freezer in a plastic bag, and pull out a few cookies to bake anytime you want.
