Cookies Recipes - Chocolate Chunk Cookies

2-1/2 cups old fashioned or quick oats, uncooked
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted, butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 (12 oz.) pkg. Semi-Sweet, or Milk Chocolate Chips, or Chocolate Chunks
1 (6 oz.) bag Walnut Pieces

Place small amount of oats in blender or food processor container. Process until
powdered. Repeat until all oats are powdered. Combine oats, flour, baking powder,
baking soda and salt; mix well. Beat butter and sugars with electric mixer until light
and fluffy. Blend in eggs and vanilla. Add dry ingredients to sugar mixture; mix
well. Stir In chocolate and walnuts. Chill at least 1 hour.
Form heaping tablespoons of mixture into golf ball-size balls; place 2 inches
apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375°, 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly
browned. Cool on cookie sheet 1 minute. Remove cookies to wire rack to cool.
Roll chilled dough into five 10x1-1/2 inch logs. Wrap In
foil or freezer proof plastic wrap. Freeze up to two months.
Preheat oven to 375°. For large cookies, slice
log into 3/4” slices, halve. For bite size cookies, slice log into 1/2” slices; quarter.
Place chunks on cookie sheet. Bake 12-15 minutes for large cookies, 8-10 minutes
for bite size. Cool on cookie sheet 2 minutes; remove and cool on rack. For moist
cookies store in airtight container after cooling 5-10 minutes.
Each log makes approximately 2 dozen large or 5 dozen bite-size cookies.
