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!
CHOCOLATE CHIP OATMEAL COOKIES
1 c. butter flavored shortening
1/4 c. creamy peanut butter
2/3 c. brown sugar
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
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?)
