By Popular Demand...


At least Viki was open (brave?) enough to comment PUBLICLY that she wanted the recipe for those cookies. SHE’S not worried that someone might think she’s cheating on her new diet.

(Well, she did indicate she was making them for the kids, didn’t she? No, that was someone else. Sorry.)

But the REST of you who have sent me private emails asking for the recipe... What can I say? You’re just being SNEAKY!

But I don’t blame you. These things are so good, even I (moi!) sneak one or two (or three) every now and then.

So, anyway, as the title of this post indicates, by popular demand, here is the recipe for the famous “best in the world” cookies!


Cream together:
1 c. butter flavored shortening
1/4 c. creamy peanut butter
2/3 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla

Mix together first then add to creamed mixture:
1 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
2 c. old fashioned Quaker Oats
1/2 c. toasted wheat germ

Add last:
2 c. chocolate chips

Dough may seem crumbly so compress spoonfuls slightly and press lightly on cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Makes 6 dozen cookies. (John’s note: You’ll need more!)

(This year? Copy it into your recipe book, willya?)

Consider it officially copied. I haven't made them yet, I think we'll do that tomorrow, as it looks like we'll endure another pathetic pseudo-winter, rainy, coldish January Chicago day, during which there is absolutely nothing better to do than bake cookies and sit around and eat them.

One of my favorites. I love chocolate and oatmeal both.

A lot of people I know around here don't like oatmeal cookies. The area schools sell a variety of cookie dough to raise money for sports, so folks usually buy one of each. I've had many of them give me their tubs of oatmeal raison because they don't like it. I think oatmeal raisin is one of the best and I don't care for raisins, LOL!
