The Ultimate Cookie

What is the biggest fan favourite in your house? In ours it is my oatmeal chocolate chip cookie. I make a 4 liter bucket full and they last about 3 days if we are lucky. Here's my recipe.

1 cup margarine
2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
1tsp vanilla

Soften the margarine in the microwave, add the brown sugar and cream together. Add the eggs one at a time, toss in the vanilla. Mix until smooth.

2 cups oatmeal
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda

Toss these into the wet ingredients and stir to combine.

3/4 cup coconut
2 cups chocolate chips

Stir these in at the end.

Drop by spoonfuls or use a #2 cookie scoop. Makes 5 dozen.

Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes or until golden.

Alix, I'm awaiting my 4-liter care package

These sound really good - but, tell me - what is a #2 scoop?

A #2 scoop is a 2 oz scoop I believe. I could be out to lunch here, but that is what mine says. Pampered chef has different sized scoops for making cookies and muffins etc. This will give you the idea.

Alix;
If you take that recipe, and omit adding the coconut and chocolate chips, you have a crisp topping for coblers and crisps, like apple crisp. You can also add spices such as nutmeg and cinnamon to your recipe. It also goes great over a pumpkin custard, as in the stuf you use for pumpkin pie.

You have a very versatile recipe that can be used for everything from ice-cream topping (once its been baked), to the topping on many baked deserts, and for cookies. You could even alter it just a bit to make granola.

Goodweed, I missed your post on here. Thanks for the advice about this recipe. I am sure lots of folks will be happy to hear how versatile this is. As for me though, it will remain cookies only. LOL, when I make crisps/cobblers I "wing it" for measurements.

I hadn't thought about granola. I haven't made that in years. I think I may have to see if anyone has good recipes to share.

Debbie, just add a little more oatmeal or try some crushed cornflakes. Makes for a fun crunch.
