Mine seem to be famous among my family and friends…. I usually add more then just choc chips…. I pick up chuck chunks, some reese chips (usually in the baking aisle) and some skor pieces (same, they are in the choc chip aisle), and then I usually throw in a handful of coconut lol… dont ask me why I love flavors and it works.

My recipie also makes the cookies/or should I say keeps them soft (its using cornstarch instead of baking powder)

¾ cup butter (room temp)

1 cup brown sugar

¼ cup white sugar

1 egg

1-2 tbsp vanilla (I always use lots, it makes them tasty)

2 cups flour

2 tsp cornstarch

1 tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

1 cup choc chips

And other cup of whatever you like, reese chips, and skor chips are my fav……I always add enough chocolate stuff so it looks totally saturated!!! (all 3 in one cookie…my Darling Husband calls them magic)

Preheat oven to 350. Plop decent sized balls onto baking sheet

Bake for 8-10 min but keep a close eye at 7 min…… take them out just as the centers don’t look wet anymore….(slightly golden on edges) Try not to overcook. Unless you REALLY overbake they shouldn’t go crispy but I find 8 min in my oven is perfect.

If he like reese cups I have a good one for that too and no baking, tastes JUST like the real thing……

This is my go-to. Fiance loves them and his co-workers ask for them all the time. Plus I can say they’re “healthy” because they have oats in them. I omit the nuts because I am paranoid about serving to someone with nut allergies by mistake. This many stars and this many reviews CAN’T be wrong.

People go crazy for these oatmeal cookies everytime I make them

Oatmeal Crispies

1 cup shortening (or butter)

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup granulated sugar

2 well beaten eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 ½ cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

3 cups oatmeal

¾ cup raisins (optional)


Mix shortening and sugars together well. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix until creamy. In a separate bowl, mix flour, salt and soda together. Add flour mixture to sugar mixture. Add oatmeal and raisins (if you must). Blend well.

Chill in refrigerator at least 1 hour. Drop from tablespoons onto cookie sheet and bake at 350° for about 10 minutes. Cookies will look golden brown around the edges, and lighter in the middle. Let cool about 5 minutes before removing from the pan

Lucky for you, this Albertan is having troubles sleeping tonight. So, I experimented with baking cookies at 3 am! Laughing

I just adapted the recipe from HowSweetEats.com.

I made a double batch and ended up with more cookies since I made the test batch cookies smaller. (Smaller cookies cook relatively fast at 7 minutes) Anyway! I shan’t ramble. I will share you pictures from my InstaGram, if I may! I am kinda lazy to put it up on my food blog, so I’ll share it here. (Pardon the grainy poor lighting cellphone picture)


And I wrote a recipe card out as I plan to surprise my neighbours with cookies & this recipe card:

I’ve made red velvet cupcakes before and found that by adding coffee, it brings out the chocolate flavour a lot more. If your hubby loves cream cheese icing, you could probably incorporate cream cheese into the middle of the cookie. Then, you’d have a “Middles” version of Chips Ahoy in Red Velvet cookie format! (These would make great ice-cream sandwiches too!)

My oven bakes quite fast since it’s convection; 8.5 minutes worked well for me. I wouldn’t go longer than 9 minutes at 375F. Please let me know if you have difficulties reading my handwriting!

ETA: I baked these cookies to bring to work tomorrow. My coworkers and I are working through month-end (accounting). It’s going to be a long day for me, but it will be worth it. ๐Ÿ™‚
