Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

A Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie Recipe From Home Style Austin
My Favorite Cookie

This recipe is a family favorite and I whipped up a few batches for the holidays … because cookies make everything better! What makes this my favorite? I think it’s the special blend of chocolate, oatmeal, pecans and two sugars that do not disappoint the tastebuds.

Foodie Tips:

  At an early age I quickly learned that here in Texas that “nuts” is an abbreviation for “Texas Pecans.”

  If you like chewy cookies like I do make sure and don’t bake these too long!

Ingredients: 

1 Cup  |  Crisco
1 Teaspoon  |  Vanilla
1 Cup  |  Sugar
½ Cup  |  Brown Sugar (firmly packed)
2  |  Cage Free Eggs
1 Teaspoon  |  Baking Soda
3 Teaspoons  |  Baking Powder
1 ¾ Cups  |  Flour
1 Cup  |  Oatmeal
1 Cup  |  Nuts (a.k.a. Texas Pecans)

Directions: 

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. That was easy!

2. Combine shortening, vanilla and sugars and cream well. Add well-beaten eggs and blend thoroughly.

3. Sift soda and baking powder with flour and add to the creamed mixture.

4. Add oatmeal and nuts and blend.

5. Drop on cookie sheet with a cookie scoop or teaspoon.

6. Bake at 350°F for 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven and let rest on a cooling rack.
