Titus and I made these cookies the other night ’cause he was begging to help me bake. I halved the recipe, but was quickly wishing I hadn’t because they were gone in no time!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies (from the NutriMill User’s Manual)

  • 2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 c. shortening
  • 1 3/4 c. flour (I used freshly ground hard white wheat, but you could also use soft white wheat, rye, or white flour)
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 c. quick-cooking rolled oats
  • 1 c. chocolate chips

In a large mixing bowl, cream the first four ingredients together with a hand mixer. If you have one, switch to using a dough hook, then blend in the next three ingredients. Finally, stir in the oats and chocolate chips.

Drop by spoonfuls onto a greased baking sheet, and bake at 350* for 8-10 minutes. (Note: if using a cast iron baking sheet, increase the time to about 12 minutes). They should still look slightly undercooked, but will harden slightly as they cool. If you prefer a crunchy cookie, bake until slightly browned on top.

Makes 5 dozen.
