You are ever unprepared when it happens. It sneaks up behind you and with terrifying speed, snatches your rational thought right from your head. I am talking about cravings. And the other night, at someone else’s house, I was attacked by one. Cookie! ME WANT COOKIE!
A word of advice, if I may. Never, ever, ever, use a recipe that has been endorsed by people you don’t know when you are being attacked by cravings. We were not at home. We wanted cookies. It was so bad that we were sporting goggly eyes and everything. Being the technologically brilliant person I am, I pulled out the iPhone and looked for a reasonable sounding cookie recipe.
Upon finding a recipe, we decided that it was too hot to bake these cookies inside, so I was going to have to grill them. At least we had the materials for that, if not my greatest ever cookie recipe. (Not the awesome one, already featured on this site) Needless to say, I should have known something was amiss when I was given instruction to beat the sugar and butter together, then add liquid, beat some more, and somehow that makes it fluffy?
Well anyway, I continued with the recipe, and found it was too viscous to be a dough, so added more flour and some oatmeal to thicken it up. Finally after much adding and mixing, I had something reasonably useable as a dough.
The dough is more doughy, enough to add the chocolate chips into the recipe. Now we’re talking. This is beginning to look a lot more like cookies!
We fired them on some soaked and sprayed planks, and then on to the grill. Ten minutes later the planks were burning, and the cookies were still soft.
When they were finally cooked through enough to pull off the grill, I set them on a rack to cool. Each one of us was standing over them watching, as if we could see when they were cool enough to eat without removing layers of flesh. As if choreographed, we reached for a cookie all at the same time…took a big bite…and…
Well they were cookies. None of us went Cookie Monster on them as we had hoped to. They are better, more edible, when heated, as opposed to just plain out of the fridge.
So that all being said, here is the recipe, a tested and reliable recipe, for the cookies that I have been making for 20+ years.
This recipe is old and reliable. I have spent many years perfecting it. You can always substitute skor bits, peanut butter chips, white chocolate chips, and chopped nuts instead of the plain old chocolate chips or raisins, and wheat germ for the oatmeal. Like I said. This has been MY cookie recipe for 20+ years, and it was my mother’s before that.
Feel free to try this recipe, and always you can ask questions about it. Just email me if you need any help.
