Best-Ever Cookie Recipe

Best-Ever Cookie RecipeIn our house, these cookies don’t last long enough to make it overnight in the cookie jar.

I put them in and by the next morning, the jar is empty.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Cup Butter
  • 1/2 Cup Margerine or Crisco or butter substitute (vegetable oil works as well)
  • 1 1/2 Cups Sugar
  • 2 Tbps molasses
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups rolled oats, ground to flour in the blender
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 12-16 oz chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut (optional but yummy)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Cream butter and sugar. Add molasses, eggs, and vanilla. Mix dry ingredients then add to creamed mixture. Add chocolate chips and coconut.

Bake 10-12 minutes.

Makes 4-5 dozen.

Note:

I make about 18 cookies and then store the rest of the batter covered in the refrigerator. Then I can pull the mixture out whenever the kids want cookies for dessert and make a pan or two. I have found the batter lasts in the fridge for up to a week or so with no problems.

 

I shared this recipe with a LinkUp at A Net In Time, so you can hop over and read some other great recipes… I know there is a great one for Lemon Loaf!

      Thanks! By the way, we tried your July 4th cookie/cake with the berries on top recipe — my kids and husband said it was the best they ever had! Thank you for that.

  • Going to try these

      They are healthy too! (sort of…)
